The Administrative Core provides central programmatic leadership and coordination to improve and foster new relationships, to manage future planning, and to facilitate communication between investigators, projects, cores, and other consortium participants. The Administrative Core develops and implements the policies and procedures of the CRC and guides daily operations. The core manages the allocation and distribution of CRC resources (personnel, money, equipment, and supplies) for CRC research. The CRC Biomedical Informatics Workgroup (CBMI) within Core A develops and maintains information systems that increase the efficiency of consortium activities, decrease resource requirements, and enable consistent data collection, thereby enabling and facilitating translational research.

  • Provide scientific and administrative oversight to all components of the Consortium
  • Coordinate communication and organize meetings between CRC investigators, staff, DSMB, external and internal advisory boards
  • Execute effective planning and evaluation systems to monitor program performance and efficiency in regards to resource management
  • Monitor for compliance with NIH, NCI, FDA, DHHS, and participating organizations, and render reports concerning such monitoring. Monitor use of human subjects, animal subjects, and tissue specimens
  • Develop and maintain specific policies and procedures to ensure the quality and confidentiality of all CRC data and associated information management systems. Maintain ongoing research into the enhancement of said policies to ensure compliance with evolving regulatory and legislative requirements
  • Provide coordination in the search and application for appropriate sources of funding for projects related to the CRC
  • Manage grants/contracts, perform fiscal oversight/management, and funds disbursement
  • Provide information management systems, including clinical, basic science, and administrative data collection, storage, and analysis instruments
  • Expand current information management systems to incorporate new data sets and data management requirements. This includes the development of data warehousing and mining tools, real-time analytic instruments, and data quality assurance/monitoring systems
  • Provide the community and CLL patients specifically, with information regarding CRC research activities and general CLL educational materials
