Now in its tenth year, the Fordham University HIV and Drug Abuse Prevention Research Ethics Training Institute (RETI) is currently accepting applications for the 2020 Summer Institute and Mentored Research Program.
This NIDA-funded program, directed by Center for Ethics Education Director and Principal Investigator, Dr. Celia B. Fisher, provides early career investigators in the social, behavioral, medical and public health fields with an opportunity to gain research ethics training.
- Attend two summer training institutes with fully funded travel and lodging in New York City: July 13-21, 2020 and July 2021 (dates TBD)
- Receive a $30,000 grant to conduct a mentored research study that will contribute to evidence-based HIV & drug abuse research ethics practice.
- Join an international network of scholars examining current challenges in HIV & drug abuse research ethics.
Our fellows have published their mentored research studies in peer reviewed journals, presented the data at national and international conferences, and incorporated it as pilot data for grant applications.
