Eukaryotic microbial pathogens cause significant disease globally, and more locally, threaten the health of citizens in South Carolina and the Southeastern United States. Clemson University’s foundation in eukaryotic pathogens research has led to the formation of the Eukaryotic Pathogens Innovation Center (EPIC), formally approved by the University Board of Trustees in January 2013. This will, indeed, strengthen this important area of biomedical research. The overarching theme of EPIC is the study of eukaryotic pathogens using state-of-the-art molecular, cellular, biochemical, genetic, and genomic approaches.
The PI and the Co-PI will oversee the entire management of the project. Their responsibilities will include, but are not limited to, the following: budget oversight, mentoring, hiring, creation of center culture, intramural and extramural communication, and future planning. The PI and Co-PI represent a strong leadership team and will create an Administrative Core to carry out these duties.
