Team Science

      Solving complex clinical and translational science problems demands collaborations between investigators from multiple disciplines. SCTR has been fostering these collaborations through:

  • Scientific retreats that lead to new research teams
  • Requiring that investigators who are funded in the Pilot Project program are part of a multidisciplinary team
  • Ensuring that all SCTR-supported programs are designed to maximize opportunities for collaboration
  • Partnership with the MUSC Office of Interprofessional Initiatives
  • Funding geared toward the "Science of Team Science"
  • New educational programs designed to teach best practices in team science
