The CCs primary mission will include collaborative scientific contribution and entail administrative and communication responsibilities.
The activities and responsibilities include, but are not limited to, fostering collaboration among transdisciplinary scientific teams across U01 research sites, facilitating identification and collection of common data across U01 sites for use in pilot projects, participating in cross U01 site pilot projects, and leading data analyses, exploring opportunity for novel data collection, examining common research questions across U01 sites, and providing communication and logistical support for annual in-person meetings of the U01 project sites and other cross-site virtual meetings of U01 investigators.
The CC will also develop and execute a platform to monitor progress facilitate the evaluation of the initiative across U01 project sites.
