funding: Well, much of our funding comes from indirect cost return to the CCBB. I’ve gotten 2K and 4K from various university funds. We charge money for workshops.
staff: Our center has about 10 people. A director, 2 admins (1 also does all our graphic design), 4 bioinformatics, and me. We recruit students, postdocs, and faculty to teach our workshops and lead working groups.
sustainability: Our Dean is very supportive of our cause, so I think even if/when some of us move on, the mission will continue to be supported
