The Administrative Core is responsible for the coordination, planning, assessment, project accounting, and administrative support to the research personnel of the University of Kentucky SRC. A major objective of the Administrative Core is to facilitate the execution of an interdisciplinary research theme through administrative support and fiscal accountability.
Research efforts are coordinated through monthly meetings of faculty, students and research staff, as well as seminars, where new findings and planned activities and ideas are discussed. It also is critical to discuss research findings for informative/educational, technology transfer, training, policy and translational purposes as part of the objectives of the Research Translation, Community Engagement, and Training Cores. Accountability of the UK-SRC activities, including the quality of science and administration, is maintained through regular consultations with both the External and Internal Advisory Boards.
Research quality assessment and statistical consultation is managed through the Research Support Core. General fiscal responsibilities or project accounting is coordinated through the Administrative Office in conjunction with the University of Kentucky Research Foundation. A Program Coordinator, together with the Program Director, serves as a regular contact among all SRP activities, including Research Projects and Cores, and coordinates all reports required by the sponsoring agencies.
