T32 Program Description
Pre-doctoral training program at the intersection of basic process research
and clinical intervention for substance use. The program offers a wide range
of interdisciplinary research and applied experiences at the University Of
Maryland, College Park as well as with affiliated faculty at institutions in
the greater Washington DC area (e.g., NIH, University of Maryland Medical
School, Johns Hopkins University). In the context of a translational research
project, trainees will receive joint supervision from one mentor affiliated
with the cross-disciplinary Neuroscience and Cognitive Sciences (NACS)
Program and the other mentor affiliated with the Center for Addictions,
Personality, and Emotion Research (CAPER). Professional development will be a
core feature of the program, including participation in an interactive
speaker series, training in ethical conduct across both research and applied
domains, access to research and clinical opportunities with underserved
populations, and development of grant writing skills.
