The Management Core (MC) for the CTBScience provides oversight, management, and coordination of all research and core-related activities. Specifically, the MC is responsible for fiscal management, institutional review processes, data safety monitoring, and community involvement, as well as for recruitment, enrollment, retention, and data management. The Management Core at CTBScience involves two sub cores, with each complimenting the work of the other and the Center as whole.
The MC also oversees the center's research assistants and facilitates the center's involvement with undergraduate and graduate students at FSU. Although center faculty work independently on research projects, the MC is available to assist in project development and regulatory aspects of research projects. A primary goal of the MC is to promote cohesiveness in the development of new center projects and to provide oversight to existing projects.
