Administration and Operations


The ACTRI Finance team coordinates all aspects of fiscal affairs for the ACTRI. The team works closely with the UC San Diego Office of Contracts and Grant Administration, Health Sciences Sponsored Project Pre-Award Office, and the Office of Post Award Financial Services and acts as the point of contact for all fiscal matters pertaining to awards to ACTRI.


The ACTRI Communications team leads efforts to increase awareness and understanding of the Institute and its work. With a focus on audiences that include researchers, the broader UC San Diego community, industry and community partners, and the over 50-member CTSA national consortium, this team works collaboratively with ACTRI program representatives to identify priorities, to encourage cross-program communication and promotion, and to amplify news, science advances, and successes.
