Statewide Retreats

SCTR facilitates collaboration across traditional disciplinary and institutional lines by sponsoring thematic-based retreats for basic, clinical and population scientists, and community practitioners at all levels of career development. Topics address health conditions of importance to SC, are attended by investigators and community members from across the state and are often followed by a special call for pilot grants related to the retreat topic. SCTR also sponsors an annual translational research day and mentorship symposium that provide a forum for trainees and scholars to present their research and participation in career development activities.
