Education & Outreach

From the beginning of our Center more than 20 years ago, the important training/education/outreach mission expected from all NIAAA-funded Centers has been supported. Successful outreach programs bring recognition to the Center as the “go-to” organization when it comes to matters involving alcohol abuse, and provide education and outreach activities to the local community. Faculty, students, and staff provide educational activities throughout local schools, religious and civic organizations, and health fairs.

Dr. Howard Becker and the administrative staff coordinate the Addictions Research Seminar Series. This seminar series brings outside speakers to present a formal lecture and meet with interested Center faculty, trainees, and research staff. These activities permit investigators and trainees to learn about recent research advances and to benefit from scientific interchange with an outside expert. Although intended primarily for the enrichment of the Center faculty, trainees, and staff, the presentations of these prominent scientists are advertised to the MUSC academic community as well.

Continued professional development and scientific enrichment is critical to keeping the Center faculty, pre/post-doctoral trainees, and staff abreast of the latest scientific advances, technology and science-related skills. This ensures that our scientists remain on the cutting-edge of alcohol research.
