The Northwestern University Skin Biology and Diseases Resource-based Center was established in August 2009 with funding from the NIH-National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases (NAIMS, 1P30AR075049).
The Administrative Core is responsible for coordinating all activities of the Skin Biology and Diseases Resource-based Center, including educational and research initiatives and linking the several committees and core leadership who manage the day-to-day operations of the center activities. The center's Administrative Core keeps focus on the overall goal of our center – to promote outstanding bench and clinical research in cutaneous biology with an emphasis on the keratinocyte and its microenvironment, ultimately improving patient care.
We achieve this goal by:
- Providing cutting edge technologies to SBDRC users in service cores
- Fostering existing and developing new collaborations among SBDRC users through our Enrichment Program and communication venues
- Supporting mechanisms that encourage translational research and greatly augment research capabilities and collaboration related to skin biology among Northwestern faculty
