Research Strategic Plans Overall strategic plan for the College of Medicine was developed in October of Areas identified for investment: Genetics Population Science Infrastructure Translational research
Research Strategic Plans Genetics Strategic Plan Developed in September of 2011 and called for the development of a Center for Genomic Medicine. The center mission is to provide the leadership, expertise and core resources to facilitate the acquisition and application of genetic and genomic information to research and to the practice of medicine across the MUSC campus and throughout South Carolina. Public Health Sciences Strategic Plan Developed in December of 2011 and called for the development of a Department of Public Health Sciences. The Department’s mission is to promote public health sciences across the College of Medicine through research that enhances public health and disease prevention and to develop a faculty dedicated to advancing public health strategies in the practice of medicine and maintaining the health of the entire community.
Infrastructure In July of 2011 the College of Medicine created an Infrastructure Committee to review and assess the infrastructure needs within the College. Biorepository Vision: “To develop a university-wide, state-of-the art Tissue Biorepository network that advances research, service, and education”. Research Strategic Plans
Bridge Funding The purpose of the bridge funding program is to support investigators with established clinical or basic research programs during periods when a competitive renewal or “next stage” application is not funded. The originating grant must have received full indirect costs. Examples of eligible grants include competing R01 and NSF renewals and new R01 resubmissions that were initiated by an R03, R21 or K award. Bridge funding awards will not exceed $60,000. Awards will be co-funded by equal contributions from the Dean’s office and the Department where the original award was assigned. The award period will be for one year. Application deadlines for bridge-funding will be April 15th, August 15th, and December 15th of each year.
