Welcome to MUSC's NIDA K12 Program Website


In 2013, the Medical University of South Carolina announced the establishment of the K12 Career Development Program in Drug Abuse and Addicition. The K12 Career Development Program at the Medical University of South Carolina supports the research career development of junior faculty members who have recently completed clinical training or postdoctoral fellowships, and who have mentorship and a solid plan for training in clinical research relevant to drug abuse and addiction. This is a K12 career development program funded by the National Institute of Drug Abuse (NIDA).


Program Overview


MUSC's NIDA K12 Program provides intensive mentored research experiences designed to prepare outstanding junior faculty to become independent investigators in drug abuse and addiction research.

As part of the program, scholars receive:

  • Didactic instruction in responsible conduct of research, experimental design, biometry, statistical analysis, research methods, and basic research skills related to drug abuse and addiction, in order to provide a strong, comprehensive base of relevant knowledge and skills
  • Seminars and journal clubs in drug abuse and addiction research in order to promote information exchange and interdisciplinary interaction in the context of current findings and new implications
  • Ongoing activities providing continuing review and consultation in critical areas such as biostatistical consultation, research ethics, human subject protection and privacy issues, and grantsmanship, in order to ensure continuous learning, sound judgment, and awareness of changing dynamics in scientific research
  • A comprehensive evaluation plan utilizing formative and summative techniques as well as formal and informal approaches for reviewing and evaluating both scholar progress and program effectiveness in order to provide outstanding mentoring in research relevant to drug abuse and addiction
