BRIDGE, RESEARCH SUPPORT & VOUCHER
COMETS provides support newly established research teams of two faculty members with different by complementary expertise to conduct basic, translational, or clinical research. The program targets mid-career and senior investigators with a strong funding and publication history, and difficulty obtaining R01 (or equivalent) support in the past 18-24 months.
In an effort to ensure faculty have access to cutting edge core technologies and expertise that cannot normally be maintained by a single laboratory or within a single department. The Infrastructure Committee invites faculty to submit proposals for new core concepts. This three-step process involves an initial written report that describes the proposed core, its users and operations; presentation by the core director to the Infrastructure Committee; and a recommendation by the Committee to the Dean of the College of Medicine.
The SCIRF invites applications for Investigator Initiated Research grants.

The K12 Paul Calabresi Clinical & Translational Oncology Training Program goal is to train successful, patient-oriented, clinical- and laboratory-based investigators who can work effectively in a collaborative, translational research setting. Each trainee participant will be provided salary support and an expert mentoring team along with the resources to complete tailored course work, clinical and laboratory research rotations and projects. These scholars will bridge the knowledge derived from both the laboratory and clinic and apply that knowledge directly to establishing new, effective cancer interventions.
Applications Due: January 7, 2015

The purpose of the Pilot Program is to provide short-term start-up funds to promising postdoctoral fellows and junior faculty (less than 5 years from post-doctoral training/terminal degree) at MUSC to collect initial data for an RO3, R21, or R01 submission. The project must focus on a neuroscience-related topic and explore either sex/gender differences or disorders/treatments as they uniquely relate to women. The project can be either clinical or basic science, but consistent with the NIH Roadmap Initiative and the vision of MUSC’s South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research Institute (SCTR). Projects involving multidisciplinary teams and/or translational research efforts are especially encouraged.
