tionar there were a number of definitions relating to light assing through a substance. his is particularly relevant to he profession of research ad-inistration where we are re-uired to shine a light n/through our standard ractices and allow our cus-omers (faculty, sponsors, in-titution leadership, and state understand how we are good stewards of sponsored grant and contract awards. The article written by my friend and colleague Susan Wyatt Sedwick in concert with Louise Nelson gives us insight into where our reporting requirements may be headed in the fu-ture as piloted through the Federal Demonstration Partner-ship under the innovative STAR METRICS program. Business and personal transparency is directly related to in-tegrity and accountability as so eloquently presented by one of our newest Contributing Editors, Craig Reynolds. This very important and relevant connec-tion between transparency and in-tegrity is further reinforced by an article from one of our guest contribu-tors, Dr. William Wiener at the Council of Graduate Schools. In academic medical centers we tend to think that export controls are not relevant to bio-medical research, and I have been try- eaders in medical centers that export controls are important and relevant to our area of research. I, therefore, was very pleased to read the article which Steve Mackey from the University of Miami authored. I recently visited Haiti with one of the medical teams from my institution and have an increased awareness about the importance of international relationships. So I was very pleased to see John Carfora’s interview of Martin Kirk and Dr. Kirk’s perspective on international research administra-tion. NCURA has been able to forge an excellent relation-ship with our research administration partners across the globe due to the efforts of the International Neighborhood, the President’s Commission on International Research Ad-ministration, and the NCURA Ambassador Corps. I am very pleased to present this edition ofNCURA Mag-azinethe caliber of authors is re-to you and point out that ally stellar in large part due to the high standards of our Senior Editor, Jim Casey, the Co-Editors, and the NCURA staff. Many thanks to the authors and everyone involved in this issue. Tom Wilson NCURA Magazine Co-Editor
