SOUTH CAROLINA CLINICAL & TRANSLATIONAL RESEARCH INSTITUTE

SCTR Scientific Retreat - Diabetes and Metabolic Disease Research

  Friday, April 20, 2018


Objectives of the Retreat

Our goal is to advance diabetes and metabolic diseases related research in the state by creating an opportunity for researchers to share their current findings, research problems, solutions and opportunities to stimulate new interdisciplinary research collaborations. We specially encourage discussion of specific research questions for which you seek collaborations. Please consider sharing your research in a 15 minute presentation (10 minutes talk with 5 minutes Q&A). Attendees will have an opportunity to apply for the SCTR Pilot Project Program funds to support new collaborations focused on retreat theme related topics.
