GGC Faculty Named as Clinical Professors at Clemson University School of Health Research

January 11, 2017 – Clemson University’s School of Health Research (CUSHR) has appointed eight Greenwood Genetic Center (GGC) faculty members as Clinical Professors within the school.

From the Greenwood campus of GGC,
Luigi Boccuto, MD;
Chin-Fu Chen, PhD;
Charles Schwartz, PhD;
Steve Skinner, MD;
Anand Srivastava, PhD;
Roger Stevenson, MD; and
Tim Wood, PhD
have received appointments to CUSHR, along with Walter Kaufmann, MD of GGC’s Greenville office.

CUSHR is a multidisciplinary unit of Clemson that facilitates medical research and scholarship. Through CUSHR, Clemson is partnering with health care systems, including GGC, Greenville Health System, the University of South Carolina School of Medicine, and the Medical University of South Carolina to offer clinical opportunities for students and researchers, as well as to collaborate on a variety of health-related research agendas.

GGC also has a formal collaboration with Clemson through the University’s Center for Human Genetics facility which was recently completed on the Greenwood campus.

“Joining CUSHR will expand upon the existing collaborations we already enjoy with Clemson through their Center for Human Genetics by further engaging with them on research projects and educational initiatives,” said Steve Skinner, MD, Director of GGC. “By working closely with Clemson and other academic and industry partners, we are looking to transform the way genetic disorders are diagnosed and treated and to enhance the education of those who will be leading our field in the future.”
