Research Opportunities at MUSC for students interested in cellular and molecular biology

Interested in cellular and molecular biology research? Dr. Michael Scofield’s addiction neuroscience laboratory at the Medical University of South Carolina is looking for high-achieving undergraduate students to aid in the completion of a variety of research projects.

The lab uses state-of-the-art techniques to better understand relapse biology and the cellular and molecular correlates of drug craving. Undergraduate research assistants will gain tangible experience with key research techniques, including electrochemical recordings, immunohistochemical analysis, confocal microscopy, digital rendering, neuronal and astroglial structural plasticity analyses, and operant drug self-administration withdrawal and relapse paradigms.

With lots of ongoing projects, students who are interested in research are encouraged to email Dr. Michael Scofield ( for more info.
