RETI Summer Training Program for Early Career Investigators
RETI 2012 Summer Training Program Fellows
Fellows accepted into the Fordham University RETI are involved in the institute over the course of a two year period, beginning with an intensive 10-day summer program conducted by our interdisciplinary faculty of experts in HIV research and ethics. The summer institute offers lectures, discussions, skill-based exercises and mentoring for fellows to: (a) gain knowledge of ethical issues such as recruitment, confidentiality and informed consent in HIV research among drug using and other at-risk populations; (b) acquire skills to empirically examine research ethics challenges; and (c) develop a proposal for a mentored research project. The following summer, fellows will give formal presentations on their mentored research projects and receive intensive guidance in writing for publication, presentation and future funding. Fellows will receive support for travel, lodging, and meals for both summer institutes.
All fellows accepted into the Fordham University RETI must:
• have a doctoral, medical or equivalent degree in social, behavioral, medical,
nursing, public health or related fields
• have demonstrated scholarship in HIV prevention research
• have 6 years or less post-doctoral experience
• meet requirements to apply for NIH funding
Special attention will be given to those applicants whose proposed research ethics plan includes drug using populations.
