About Us

The Addiction Sciences Division (ASD) provides an unparalleled environment for conducting alcohol and drug research, for training students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior faculty in the addictions, and for translating advances in research to state-of-the-art clinical care. Within the ASD, the expertise exists such that it is possible to follow a continuum of research beginning at the molecular level, through neural circuits and animal models of craving, addiction, and withdrawal across the lifespan, to clinical laboratory paradigms and clinical trials, culminating in dissemination and implementation to front-line patient care. We are also equipped to influence public policy. Few institutions can boast of having this type of a continuum, further highlighting the uniqueness and strength of the Medical University of South Carolina's (MUSC) translational addiction research environment for both new and established investigators.
The ASD is comprised of three separate, but inter-related branches: Clinical Care, Research, and Education/Training.
