The Fordham University HIV and Drug Abuse Prevention Research Ethics Training Institute (RETI), sponsored by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), is now accepting applications for its summer program running from July 7 – 15, 2024. RETI provides early career investigators with ethics training and a $30,000 grant award to conduct a mentored research project on ethical issues in HIV and drug use research.

Directed by Celia Fisher, PhD, the intensive summer training program addresses the need for HIV 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. Through these funded mentored research projects, RETI trainees publish their findings in a variety of high-impact academic journals and are trained to apply for increasing grant opportunities.

RETI fellows make a two-year commitment with two in-person summer programs in 2024 and 2025 including fully funded travel, lodging, and meals. The application deadline is March 1, 2024.
