In partnership with the Regional Medical Center of Orangeburg, the establishment and implementation of the Biorepository and Clinical Trials Office Shared Resource is expected to significantly expand the research capacity of the SC CADRE investigators at South Carolina State University. This will enhance their ability to compete for independent, R01-level funding.

AGE Analysis

David P. Turner, Ph.D., Leader
Assistant Professor, Pathology & Laboratory Medicine
Medical University of South Carolina

The mission of the Advanced Glycation End Products (AGE) Analysis Shared Resource is to provide a central resource to perform uniform, consistent, and reliable measurements of AGE metabolite levels in a cost-effective manner for all SC CADRE research projects. This new shared resource will also evaluate all of the samples from Blacks with African ancestry in the SC CADRE full and pilot research projects for Sea Island/Gullah ancestry.
