of the core

There are several things that can be done to help promote the success of the core team. One is to empower the core group to establish an assay timeline. By delegating responsibility, there will be a greater ownership in the program and a greater commitment to make the program succeed. Another suggestion is to designate a group coordinator. The responsibilities assigned to a coordinator can include setting monthly timelines, acting as a liaison with vendors, being a focal point for communication with the head of the HTS program and chairing group meetings. Whether scientists within the group report to the coordinator or to the head of the HTS group should also be determined. Another option to consider is to make the group coordinator a rotating position where other members of the core screening group assume this responsibility every year.
