The MIT SRP Administrative Core provides fiscal oversight, supports data management activities, orchestrates internal and external meetings, and fosters communication across projects, across disciplines, and beyond MIT. To ensure a tightly integrated program, the Administrative Core coordinates meetings that include All-Hands Meetings, Internal Advisory Committee Meetings, Training Meetings, Trainee Collaboration Meetings, Forum Seminars, Webinars, External Advisory Committee Meetings, and Trainee Wellness Meetings. The Administrative Core also orchestrates the Engagement and Translation Advisory Committee Meetings, which bring to MIT leaders of stakeholder organizations. The Administrative Core also supports events that are cohosted with the Center for Environmental Health Sciences, including the DNA Repair and Mutagenesis Seminar Series, which is organized by two MIT SRP Postdocs (Simran Kaushal, Ph.D., and Norah Owiti, Ph.D.). The Administrative Core also supports the logistical requirements of the MIT SRP Annual Retreat and meetings off campus, including the NIEHS Superfund Research Program Annual Meeting. The Administrative Core also serves as a communication hub by contributing to the maintenance of the MIT SRP website, the NexGen Protocols website, and the SRP Newsletter. Finally, the MIT SRP Administrative Core supports the activities of the Community Engagement Core, the Research Translation Core, and the Research Experience and Training Coordination Core. As a result of well-orchestrated coordination and efficiently run meetings, the MIT SRP gives rise to impacts on public health that are made possible by collaborations among Projects and Cores. As such, for the MIT SRP, the whole is truly greater than the sum of the parts.
