What We Do

The Administrative Core is the head and heart of the NNE-CTR, molding all of our cores, institutions, and community partners into one cohesive network. We serve as the first point of contact for anyone interested in engaging with clinical and translational research that is regionally relevant. As a multiple Principal Investigator program led by Drs. Cliff Rosen and Gary Stein, our network is leveraging decades of clinical and translational experience. Together, their complementary expertise guides network organization and engagement equally across Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire.
