Faculty in the College of Medicine are engaged in a variety of basic, clinical, and translational research activities. Research is an important part of our mission to the State of South Carolina and our patients, and it is vital that we translate our discoveries into treatments and interventions that will improve human health. The total College of Medicine extramural research funding, for the past fiscal year, was approximately $228 million.
A primary goal of the College of Medicine is to support and strengthen the research capabilities of its faculty. As part of this goal, we implemented the College of Medicine’s Bridge Funding program.
