Role of the Administrative Core

 

The Administrative Core provides overall leadership and organizational oversight for the Center's research and community outreach and engagement support portfolios. The Administrative Core's key objective is to continue to merge the strengths of faculty and infrastructure at UW-Milwaukee and the Children's Research Institute into a powerful, seamless scientific structure to address children's environmental health problems. 

 

The executive leadership comes from the lead institutions, and Core directors are drawn from senior members of the Center who bring extensive expertise to their administrative roles. The leadership includes basic, translational and epidemiological research expertise, as well as community outreach and engagement expertise.
