Final Progress Reports

Year:   2014  2009  2004 

The Administrative Core continues to support the UC Davis Superfund program by providing a means of effective communication as well as a solid structure for fiscal management and administrative support to a large, multidisciplinary program. The Administrative Core continues to facilitate on-going communications among the various projects and cores by organizing a monthly investigator meeting and working closely with the Research Translation and Training cores to achieve effective communication strategies.

The Administrative Core coordinates opportunities for visiting scholars (both domestic and international) to participate in UCD Superfund Center research. This year, over five visiting scholars contributed to UC Davis Center research. The Core also coordinated travel to the SRP Annual Meeting in Berkeley, CA, for thirteen trainees (in addition to the program manager, Bruce Hammock, Ph.D.; assistant director, Mike Denison, Ph.D.; and seven senior investigators). Trainee Sarah Ann Carratt received an award for the student poster competition.

The Core continues to organize seminars and events targeted toward investigators and students within the Superfund program and UC Davis research community. This year, UC Davis SRP investigators presented their research at over ten public scientific seminars and symposium, and the Core also provided funding for five SRP affiliated researchers to attend the UC Davis Entrepreneurial Academies. In an effort to increase training in grant writing strategies, the Administrative Core helped organize a symposium within the Entrepreneurial Academy on SBIR funding. Another seminar on grant writing, coordinated in collaboration with the University Writing Program, targeted towards graduate students and post-docs across the UC Davis campus, provided instruction for writing training grants. The Administrative Core also provided guidance and support for a successful administrative supplement to establish translational efforts for biosolid research.
