AMP Leadership Center (AMP-LC)

AMP Leadership Center (AMP-LC)

The AMP RA/Lupus Network Leadership Center organizes all aspects of the AMP Network and serves as the main interface between the Network researchers.

LC is playing a pivotal role in establishing a nimble, creative and highly interactive group composed of leading scientists from AMP sites, each with overlapping expertise in basic, clinical and translational research; technology invention, development, and implementation; unique bioinformatics and statistical methodology; and extensive interactions with biotechnology companies, pharmaceutical industry, disease foundations, NIH and academic institutions. LC follows a distributive model of leadership that takes advantage of the strengths of each of the participating investigators and centers.
