The Administrative Core of the MCUAAAR provides administrative support, facilitate intellectual interchange, and provide overall coordination within the Center and with other university units and community health service sites.
The significance of the Administrative Core activities rests in the smooth transition that has been made from the previous two MCUAAAR grants to the first year of this grant in which MCUAAAR has made substantial progress in developing the infrastructure necessary to provide important results in the future James Jackson, Ph.D. from the University of Michigan and Peter Lichtenberg, Ph.D. from Wayne State University Institute of Gerontology serve as the Principal Investigators of the grant. The core leaders are responsible for ensuring that the center continues to meet its objectives.
The Core continues to improve the infrastructure, networks and personnel necessary to address the evolving needs of the MCUAAAR; 2) continue to support ongoing and newly funded pilot investigators, 3) and to assist those who have completed their studies in the preparation of grant submissions to the NIH.
Methods & Measurement Workgroup
The MCUAAAR MM workgroup is a subgroup of the Administrative Core. It serves as a training and research focal point in refining and honing the research skills of junior investigators. The Methods and Measurement workgroup provides expert consultation to pilot investigators on measurement and design issues.
The Workgroup's faculty, part of a multidisciplinary team of established researchers, holds workshops aimed at providing junior investigators with opportunities to expand their knowledge and use of a variety of methods and measurement instruments useful for conducting research and analyzing data from racially diverse populations.
