Date:7/14/2009

CHARLESTON, S.C., July 14 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- One of the most challenging aspects of today's health care system is the time it takes for a promising new treatment to become accessible to those who need it. Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) joins 39 previously funded academic medical research institutions within a national network working together to reduce the time it takes to turn laboratory discoveries into treatments for patients, to engage communities in clinical research efforts, and to train the next generation of researchers. MUSC has been awarded the National Center for Research Resources at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), a coveted Clinical Translational Science Award (CTSA). The NIH will grant a total of 60 CTSAs through 2012 to round out this exclusive network.

"This award is the result of the collaborative efforts of clinicians, researchers and educators across the state of South Carolina, all with the shared vision of improving the health of the state's citizens," said Kathleen Brady, M.D., Ph.D., SCTR Director and CTSA Principal Investigator. "We are grateful to the National Institutes of Health for giving MUSC and our collaborators the opportunity to join the top research universities in the U.S. in the CTSA consortium."

MUSC, and thus the South Carolina Clinical and Translational Research Institute (SCTR) that the CTSA supports, will receive $20 million in research funding during the next five years. These monies will fund a total of 11 programs on campus and through partnerships with the University of South Carolina, Health Sciences South Carolina, Clemson University, South Carolina State University, Claflin University, Greenwood Genetics Center, South Carolina Research Authority, and VA medical centers.
