The Administrative Core is the executive governing body of the ADRC and provides the vision and leadership necessary to achieve the ADRC's general and thematic goals. This team ensures operational efficiency and relatedness among the Cores by organizing and directing regular meetings.

Diversity and inclusion programs spanning from high-school to early and mid-career investigators include:

  • Community outreach initiatives for teens
  • The Developmental Awards Program
  • The Research Education Core (REC)

In addition, in order to fulfill the ADRC's commitment to its research mission, the Administrative Core collaborates with the clinical, data, neuropathological, and biomarker cores to ensure the timely disbursement of data and biospecimens to investigators worldwide. In addition, the Administrative Core fosters education and training of students, post-doctoral fellows, residents, investigators, and physicians by hosting the ADRC/Taub Research Monthly lecture series.
