About the SCTR Institute

SCTR Institute

The South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research (SCTR) Institute is the catalyst for changing the culture of biomedical research, facilitating sharing of resources and expertise, and streamlining research-related processes to bring about large-scale, change in the clinical and translational research efforts in South Carolina. Our vision is to improve health outcomes and quality of life for the population through discoveries translated into evidence-based practice.

SCTR facilitates cross-disciplinary research by coordinating expertise and resources throughout the state. SCTR also catalyzes the development of teams of researchers with unique and complimentary perspectives who create and implement effective, culturally sensitive primary and secondary prevention, and treatment interventions based on fundamental discoveries.

"This publication [or project] was supported by the South Carolina Clinical & Translational Research (SCTR) Institute, with an academic home at the Medical University of South Carolina, through NIH - NCATS Grant Number UL1 TR001450.”

The Medical University of South Carolina established the South Carolina Clinical & Translational Research Institute (SCTR) in 2006 in response to the NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) Program, aimed at transforming approaches to research and discovery implementation. The main thrust of the CTSA Program is to catalyze the development of interdisciplinary research initiatives to accelerate the translation of discoveries into improved therapies and clinical practice while breaking down programmatic boundaries. Multiple cores currently operate under the SCTR umbrella, including:

  • Biomedical Informatics
  • Regulatory Knowledge and Support
  • Special Populations & Community Engagement
  • Recruitment
  • Biostatistics, Epidemiology, & Research Design
  • SUCCESS Center & Research Toolkit
  • Multi-Site Study Support
  • Translational Workforce Development & Training
  • Pilot Projects & Health Technology Solutions
  • Team Science

The SUCCESS Center (Support Center for Clinical & Translational Science) is the “Front Door” of the SCTR Institute, providing comprehensive navigation to all SCTR research support resources and those of the institution and the CTSA National Network. Support scans the entire research spectrum, from inception of ideas through technology transfer and dissemination of best practice models.

The Research Nexus, a key element of SCTR, is a specialized, JCAHO-accredited clinical unit that facilitates patient-oriented research for the NIH and provides medical scientists and trainees with critical resources to advance understanding of human diseases and enhance therapeutic interventions. The Research Nexus – a 9,200 ft2 facility on the 2nd floor of MUSC's Clinical Sciences Building.
