National Hispanic Science Network (NHSN) Summer Research Training Institute
Selected students will attend a multidisciplinary 8 day training, taught by NIDA-funded scientists, revolving around a series of lectures and workshops on Hispanics and drug research. On the final day of the training, students will present a two-page abstract of a proposed research project. Each fellow will be required to submit a paper of publication quality on this same project to the University of Houston, Office for Drug & Social Policy Research within the next 12 months of completing the program. To ensure continued professional development of all participants, each fellow will be encouraged to apply for a NIDA fellowship, a NIDA minority supplement grant or seek funding from another National Institutes of Health agency.
