The AJRR-C's Administrative Core provides the management structure to support the collaborative's administrative and scientific work. It provides leadership at the institutional and national level and carries out multiple functions within the collaborative, including:
- Broad-based communication and dissemination of research
- Outreach activities
- Implementation of research projects
- Continuous improvement efforts
Training grants and pilot projects
The Administrative Core recognizes that developing the next generation of orthopedics investigators is crucial if continued progress is to be made in improving total joint replacement care.
The collaborative's pilot grants provide investigators with $20,000 a year to obtain preliminary data to support research grant applications from external agencies, especially the National Institutes of Health. The collaborative provides mentorship, critical review of proposals and coaching to improve the competitiveness of grant applications.
