Administrative Core

The function of the Administrative Core (AC) is to ensure that administrative processes are in place to support the BU ADRC mission. Under the leadership of Neil Kowall, MD (ADRC Director) the AC integrates, coordinates, directs, and plans all BU ADRC activities and ensures compliance with all human subjects, scientific integrity, and financial policy requirements set forth by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). This Core also ensures that all Core data is routinely submitted to the National Alzheimer’s Coordinating Center (NACC). This includes providing an effective structure to support our scientific efforts focused on studying AD/ADRD disease heterogeneity, ensuring the availability of our diverse cohorts, and supporting and implementing the themes and goals of the National Alzheimer’s Plan Project Act (NAPA).
