NAU seeking scholars
The Institute for Translational Research Education (ITRE) in Adolescent Drug Abuse is a federally funded, state-of-the-art research education program that teaches the practical skills of translational research and implementation science in the field of adolescent behavioral health. The Institute and its outstanding graduate scholars work with community partners, academic mentors, and national mentors to advance the field of translational science and promote evidence-based practice.
The Institute is a collaborative effort between the University of South Florida College of Behavioral and Community Sciences, and the Northern Arizona University College of Health and Human Services and Center for Health Equity Research (CHER); Dr. Julie Baldwin, Director of CHER, is Multiple Principal Investigator of the Institute. The Institute is now seeking scholars at Northern Arizona University.
