Scientific progress depends on the availability of adequate resources as well as providing an atmosphere conducive to intellectual interactions. At this time, CCGS faculty are physically located in home departments at various locations on campus. To promote the sense of cohesiveness and purpose among faculty members of the CCGS, meetings, journal clubs and retreats are ongoing. As the CCGS develops, shared resources and scientific initiatives will both assist in fundraising and contribute to collegial interactions. An essential long-range goal will be to bring Center faculty and equipment core facilities together in a dedicated space on campus.
