The Leadership/Administrative Core (LAC) provides support for planning, organizational, evaluation, and administrative activities related to the other OAIC Cores and to the OAIC as a whole. It monitor, stimulates, sustains, evaluates and reports progress towards the Center’s overall goals. To do so, the LAC has established eight specific aims:

  1. to provide day-to-day management of the UCLA OAIC
  2. to provide fiscal management for the UCLA OAIC
  3. to provide administrative oversight for internal quality control of ongoing research
  4. to review utilization of UCLA OAIC resources by other OAIC cores, including reallocation of resources within and among cores
  5. to create linkages between UCLA OAIC Cores/investigators and other UCLA researchers whose work relates to the theme and mission of the Center, particularly those that focus on translational research
  6. to solicit applications for new career development awardees (CDAs), pilots, and Developmental Projects (DPs) and coordinate the review process for these
  7. to ensure communication, coordination and collaboration among the UCLA OAIC cores, (intra-OAIC) and between the UCLA OAIC and other OAICs (inter-OAIC) and
  8. to maintain contact with NIA staff, the national OAIC Coordinating Center and the External Advisory Committee, and External Selection Panel.
