The Fordham HIV and Drug Abuse Prevention Research Ethics Training Institute is delighted to announce that the following individuals have been selected as the 2016 fellows:
The Fordham HIV Prevention Research Ethics Training Institute (RETI) is a training grant sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (#1R25DA031608-01, Principal Investigator, Celia B. Fisher, Director, Center for Ethics Education). The RETI provides early-career investigators in the social, behavioral, medical and public health fields with an opportunity to gain research ethics training. In doing so, RETI addresses the urgent need for HIV and drug use investigators who can identify and address ethical issues, engage drug using and other at-risk communities in the construction and evaluation of population sensitive research protections, and generate empirical data to inform ethical practice and policies for HIV prevention science.
The broad aims of the RETI are to: (1) provide fellows with the knowledge and skills to identify, address, and study key ethical issues in HIV prevention research in drug using and other at-risk populations; and (2) create and maintain an ongoing information and collaborative research network fostering grant proposals, research, publications, and pedagogical materials to sustain advancements in national and international HIV research ethics practices and policies.
Please visit our website for the biographies of this and earlier cohorts of RETI Fellows, as well as information about their mentored research projects and publications.
We look forward to welcoming our new fellows to the institute in July!
