ACCEL’s South Carolina Partner to co-host a scientific retreat on D&I science

Medical University of South Carolina (MUSC) and the South Carolina Clinical & Translational Research Institute are co-hosting this year’s in-person scientific retreat to be held September 9.

This year’s Scientific Retreat focus will be on “Dissemination and Implementation Science.” Whether you are engaged in D&I research, or simply interested in better understanding what it is or how you might integrate it into your own research study, this retreat is for you. Attendees will have an opportunity to apply for the SCTR Pilot Project Program funds to support new collaborations focused on retreat theme topics.

Retreat Objectives

  1. To share knowledge and current research activity in the area of D&I science, providing a platform for attendees to increase their knowledge and skill in the design and conduct of D&I studies;
  2. To network, identify resources and/or initiate collaborative partnerships in support of current or future studies to foster the dissemination and uptake of findings to target populations.
