Since Vermont has only a single research university, program coordination was relatively
straightforward. At the time Dr. Christopher Allen was the State EPSCoR Director and he and
DOE EPSCoR Director had an effective working relationship. Table 1 shows the composition of
the DOE EPSCoR Board and Table 2 shows the composition of the DOE EPSCoR Structural and
Computational Biology Executive Committee. The Principal Investigator chaired the DOE

EPSCoR Board which made major decisions regarding budgetary appropriations while the
Executive Committee solicited applications for pilot projects and established review committees
to make recommendations to the DOE EPSCoR Board as to which project should be funded and
which students should be directly supported. Over the duration of the DOE EPSCoR funding for
Structural and Computational Biology the Executive Committee held a number of retreats at the
Bishop Booth Conference Center, Burlington, Vermont. The DOE EPSCoR Executive
Committee also developed an External Advisory Board of structural and computational
biologists (Table 3) who communicated with the senior leaders by phone and with the entire
group of faculty, postdoctoral fellows, graduate and undergraduate students at the retreats. DOE
EPSCoR also supported a seminar series which brought internationally renowned structural and
computational biologists to campus to give talks to this same contingent of scholars.
