The Administrative Core, as the organizational and communication center of Children's Environmental Health (CEH), promotes the team's talents and skills towards four programmatic objectives: 1) provide leadership and innovation in basic and clinical research that furthers our understanding of environmental stressors and their impact on fetal development, 2) expand interdisciplinary research that broadens our understanding of the health risks associated with developmental exposures and the underlying molecular mechanisms associated with disease, 3) build bridges across fields and create new interdisciplinary research, training, and mentoring opportunities, and 4) effectively communicate the potential health hazards and translate the basic research findings for the benefit of public health.
The Administrative Core will implement mechanisms that optimally support the program's objectives and ensure the best and most responsible use of the available resources.
- Provide, support and develop processes that sustain and accommodate the growth of interdisciplinary basic and applied research and training.
- Maintain a communication structure that strengthens team building and facilitates the dissemination of information.
- Implement mechanisms that will optimally promote the program's objectives and ensure the best and most responsible use of the available resources.
