SC Aging Research Network
The mission of SCARN is to provide a platform for collaborative work on age-related disease and healthy aging in South Carolina through close collaborations with members of this organization. Current issues in SCARN are multi-institutional IRB protocols, grant applications and shared development funding between South Carolina Universities and Hospital Systems to promote collaborative projects across our state.
SCARN will increase quality of life and healthspan for SC and the nation.
The philosophy of SCARN is sharing resources and leadership while working towards the greater good.
