In-vivo Cellular and Molecular Imaging Center (ICMIC)




Aims, Overview and Role of Resource
The Administrative Resource is the administrative center of the JHU ICMIC.

It will provide the administrative oversight for the Research Components, the scientific Specialized Resources, the Developmental Fund, and the Career Development Component (Figure 1). The Scientific Advisory Board will communicate directly with this resource in terms of monitoring progress, providing evaluations, and counseling the Director on issues arising during the administration of the JHU ICMIC.  Since the JHU ICMIC consists of approximately 50 or more members spread over 10 departments in the School of Medicine, this resource is essential to maintain the overall infrastructure and day-to-day management of the JHU ICMIC Program.
The resource will consist of the Director, the two Associate Directors, a Research Administrator, an Administrative Research Assistant, and an Imaging Center Coordinator (Table 1). Efficient communication and a high level of interaction will be achieved through the Administrative Resource which will include the maintenance of our existing website where postings of information on day-to-day activities will be provided.
