College of Medicine Clinician Scientist K12 Scholars


The SCTR Institute and MUSC College of Medicine announce opportunities for a cohort of institutionally funded College of Medicine Clinician Scientist K12 Scholars in Clinical and Translational Science. This K12 program supports the career development of scholars holding a research or health-professional doctoral degree or its equivalent. The goal of the program is to foster the discipline of clinical research and by doing so increase the clinical research capacity to expedite clinical and translational research. The K12 program will accomplish this through a mentored program bridging clinical training with research independence.


Degrees: Junior faculty with an MD or DO degree who are committed to a career in clinical research

Citizenship: Must be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident

Employment: K12 scholars must devote 40% full-time professional effort

Support: 2 years; $20,000/year in Research Project & Training funds

Amy-Lee Bredlau, MD is former Director of MUSC's Pediatric Brain Tumor Program. She is currently an Associate Director at Regeneron Pharmaceuticals, Inc.

Satish Nadig, MD, PhD, FACS is an Assistant Professor of Surgery, Microbiology & Immunology in the Division of Transplant Surgery. After completing his general surgical training at BIDMC, Harvard Medical School in 2011 and a PhD from the University of Oxford, United Kingdom in Transplant Immunology in 2008, he pursued an adult and pediatric transplant surgery fellowship at the University of Michigan which he completed in 2013. His research interests include novel innovations in transplantation tolerance. Under the mentorship of Dr. Carl Atkinson and Ann-Marie Broome he has designed and characterized a novel nanoparticle intended for focused delivery of immunosuppression to transplant recipients. His project entitled "Nanoparticle Therapy for Targeted Drug Delivery in Organ Transplantation" merges bioengineering with transplantation and seeks to deliver necessary immunosuppressant medication directly to the transplanted organ thereby obviating the systemic side effects of these potent drugs. 

Gonzalo J. Revuelta D.O. is Assistant Professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurosurgery and Medical Director of Deep Brain Stimulation for the Neuroscience Service Line. He completed a Movement Disorders and Deep Brain Stimulation fellowship at Emory prior to joining the faculty at MUSC in 2010. His K12 project is entitled “Identification of Gait and Imaging Markers for Freezing of Gait in Parkinson’s Disease”. This study aims to characterize the locomotor network and gait parameters in freezing of gait, for the purpose of validating therapeutic targets for neuromodulation.  He will be mentored in this project by Dr. Chimowitz (clinical trial design and methodology), Dr. Jensen (imaging), and Dr. Kautz (gait analysis).
