Translational Research Day

SCTR's Translational Research Day provides a forum for trainees, scholars and investigators to display translational-based research to the MUSC community via judged poster presentations.

2021 SCTR Translational Research Day

The South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research (SCTR) Institute will host its annual Translational Research Day on March 19, 2021 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in a virtual setting. The event is a forum for trainees, scholars and investigators to display their translational-based research to the MUSC community via poster presentations.

This year's featured speakers are Peter Kalivas, Ph.D., Distinguished University Professor, MUSC and Kevin Gray, M.D., Professor, MUSC. The title of their combined presentation is “From here to there and back again: The story of glutamate transporters in treating addiction”. Their research personifies the translation from a basic science discovery to clinical investigation to population health. Their combined experiences provide an exciting opportunity to see how outstanding discoveries are translated to improve human health.

The deadline to submit an abstract is February 26, 2021.

Because this is a virtual event, pre-registration is required to attend. Pre-registration will close on March 12, 2021.

Abstracts will follow a structured format and are limited to 300 words or less. Each abstract must include the following headings: title, authors, affiliation, introduction, methods, results, conclusion/discussion and sources of support. Submissions that do not adhere to the formatting requirements outlined above will not be considered for presentation. Monetary prizes of $500 are awarded to first place abstracts in four separate categories (pre-doctoral, post-doctoral, professors, and research staff)! For any questions, please contact Michael Watson, Special Projects Coordinator, SCTR.
