Society of Clinical Research & Translational Early Scholars (SOCRATES)

SCTR Institute

SOCRATES was created to enhance mentoring of junior investigators across the MUSC campus. The members of this society consist of graduates of the MSCR program who are on faculty at MUSC, faculty currently enrolled in the MSCR program, current and previous K awardees, and current and previous VA career development grant awardees.

The B&BS Club has traditionally offered the same opportunity for junior faculty, but has geared itself towards basic scientists.

Their efforts have been combined to collaborate their strengths and give investigators unique perspectives on their research and a wide range of feedback.

Meetings Provide

  • A forum for junior faculty to present their research projects in front of their peers, members of MUSC's Mentor Leadership Counsel, Mentoring Champions, and statisticians and epidemiologists who are part of SCTR Biostatistics & Ethics Program. This will provide constructive feedback for improving and enhancing research studies and grant proposals.
  • Opportunities for meeting researchers in other departments, which can lead to collaboration across multiple specialties at MUSC.
  • A forum for discussing ways to enhance clinical and translational research across the campus.
  • Skills to help junior faculty to become the next generation of mentors at MUSC.

Meetings are the first and third Wednesdays of each month in room 201 of the Bioengineering Building. To schedule a time to present or to get on the email list for reminders and announcements, contact Katie Henze at
