COLLEGE OF MEDICINE Newsroom
Message from the Dean
Dr. Shuk-Mei Ho, candidate for the position of Founding Director of the Center for Genomic Medicine, will be giving a seminar next Wednesday, April 4, at 12:00 p.m. in 202 Basic Science Building on the topic of “Epigenetics, Environment & Disease Risk”. Dr. Ho is currently Professor and Chair of the Department of Environmental Health, Director of the Center for Environmental Genetics, Director of the Genomics and Microarray Laboratory, and Associate Dean for Basic Research at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine. All members of the college are invited to attend her seminar.
As a reminder, the Provost’s Office is now accepting applications for two important awards – the Distinguished Faculty Service Award and the Outstanding Clinician Award. The Distinguished Faculty Service Award was established to recognize and honor faculty members who have provided exceptional and sustained service and contributions in teaching, research, health care and/or public service to the University and the citizens of South Carolina. The Outstanding Clinician Award was established to honor faculty who have made outstanding contributions to patient care at MUSC. I encourage you to nominate exceptional faculty members for both of these awards. The nomination deadline is April 23; more information about these awards can be found at http://dl.dropbox.com/u/11318946/FacultyAwards.pdf.
I’d also like to remind you of the new Faculty and Staff Interprofessional Fellowship opportunity. Funded by the Creating Collaborative Care office, this fellowship provides an interested faculty or professional staff member with a year-long experience to further his/her knowledge and skills in interprofessional collaboration. Applications are due April 30. More information on this new program can be found at http://musc.edu/musc/news/univ_news/ip_fellowship_accouncement.pdf.
As always, I look forward to hearing from you via email or when I attend your departmental meetings.
With warm regards,
