Microbiome Administrative Core Directors

The Administrative Core will build on the successful administration infrastructure of the G. Oppenheimer Center for Neurobiology of Stress and Resilience (CNSR) to support the integration, synergy and productivity of the programs within the Goodman-Luskin Microbiome Center.

It will monitor, stimulate, evaluate and report on research projects and educational programs in light of the overall goals of the center and will provide assistance with grant and manuscript submissions, fund management and graphic design. 

By developing and maintaining an up-to-date website, this core will help facilitate intra-center communications and an enrichment program will offer center members frequent opportunities to exchange ideas with leaders in fields that are pertinent to basic, translational and clinical microbiome research.

Administrative Core Directors: Elaine Y. Hsiao, PhD, and Emeran A. Mayer, MD
