Reducing the Research - Practice Gap

Funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), our training program prepares pre-doctoral and post-doctoral fellows to conduct research that reduces the gap between real-world practice and evidence-based interventions targeting drug abuse prevention. Through a combination of coursework and research apprenticeships with faculty from multiple disciplines, fellows receive training in drug abuse, and implementation science. Trainees conduct studies of the methods that improve the successful uptake of evidence-based preventive interventions into real-world practice. Training faculty have particular expertise in research with ethnic minority populations and in the development of innovative quantitative methods.
