Centers and Institutes

Our centers and institutes are just one way we're working to advance medical education and improve patient care in our state. 

NIH Center for Complementary and Integrative Medicine

Not all diseases can be treated with traditional medicine. We focus on how plant-derived products can help improve health outcomes. 

NIH Center for Dietary Supplements and Inflammation

This center tests the effect of dietary supplements on autoimmune disorders. We use a natural product library to discover new drugs to treat inflammation. 

Center for Disability Resources

Many people in South Carolina are affected by intellectual, developmental and related disabilities. We work hard to address these issues, find solutions and advance research to help these people and their families.
