College of Medicine Clinician Scientist K12 Scholars Program: Now Accepting Applications
Applications are due by October 16, 2017 by Noon
We are looking for you to play the participant role for a study on the communication and dissemination of research findings to research volunteers. We are interested in getting researcher feedback about the perceived importance of getting research findings out to participants, as well as preferred methods of dissemination and challenges to the process.
If you are a researcher who has completed a study between January 1, 2012 and March 31, 2016 with a youth/adolescent (15-24.99) or older adult (50+) population, you are eligible to participate (regardless of whether or not you disseminated findings for that study).
Study participation involves completion of a survey which can be done over the phone with a member of the research team or online via a REDCap survey. Please call 843-792-2926 if you are interested in learning more about how you can participate over the phone.
The following link allows you to complete the survey online: https://redcap.musc.edu/surveys/?s=9TT8JJL3JF
Thank you, in advance, for your interest!

SC Bioengineering Center of Regeneration and Formation of Tissues (SC BioCRAFT) Pilot Project Program
The SC Bioengineering Center of Regeneration and Formation of Tissues (SC BioCRAFT) is pleased to announce that it will fund up to two pilot project grants for up to $50,000 each for one year. The general focus will be on innovative approaches for tissue regeneration. We encourage basic and translational research in the area of cardiovascular, neural, or orthopedic applications; however, any areas of translational research will be considered. Preferably, the PI should be in his or her early career path with no substantial NIH funding, but someone who is at Associate Professor Level and looking to expand their research towards NIH funding will be considered. SC BioCRAFT will provide mentoring support and free access to its Core facilities for the successful applicant. Successful candidates will propose use of SC BioCRAFT Core facilities. SC BioCRAFT members and available Core facilities are listed on the SC BioCRAFT web page (http://www.clemson.edu/scbiocraft). As an added benefit, selected target PIs will be mentored by senior NIH funded faculty to make PIs competitive for NIH funding (R01 or similar).
