Addiction-focused Centers at MUSC

There are two long-standing P50 Centers in the division: the Alcohol Research Center (ARC) funded by NIAAA since 1995, and the Specialized Center of Research (SCOR) on Sex and Gender Factors Affecting Women’s Health award funded since 2002 by the Office of Research on Women’s Health and NIDA. Both P50’s are translational in nature, and are composed of two basic and two clinical components each, along with administrative and pilot core components. A third P50, the Neurobiology of Addiction Research Center (NARC) is funded by NIDA and is housed in the Department of Neuroscience.

The Addiction Sciences Division (ASD) also is home to a NIDA-funded Node of the Clinical Trials Network (CTN) as well as a NIDA-funded P01 related to tobacco control policy and  to the Women’s Research Center (WRC), a body committed to advancing research in women’s health and promoting institutional interdisciplinary research.

Additionally, there are at least four U-type awards in the division funded by either NIDA or NIAAA. The three Center grants, the CTN, the P01, and the U01 awards work in concert with individual R-type awards to further enhance translational educational, training, and career development experiences in the addictions area on campus.
