This Core, led by Elena Volpi, MD, PhD, FGSA and Randy Strong, PhD, oversees the overall coordination, monitoring, compliance, evaluation, and reporting functions of the SA Pepper Center. It promotes institutional interactions and external relationships. The LAC supports the Executive Committee, the Institutional Advisory Committee, and the External Advisory Board.

The LAC co-sponsors a weekly seminar series with our on-campus partners, an annual retreat, visiting professor series, topical work groups, grant planning meetings, and national conferences. Please see our Events page for our current calendar.
