Training in Research on Addictions in Interdisciplinary NeuroAIDS

Training in Research on Addictions in Interdisciplinary NeuroAIDS (TRAIN; DA031098) is a NIDA-funded institutional training grant that seeks to develop the next generation of academic leaders in the neuropsychology of neuroAIDS and addictions. Substance abuse and HIV infection are highly prevalent, commonly co-occur, and have adverse affects on brain structure and function, but too few scientists are properly trained to study these important phenomena. Therefore, TRAIN endeavours to recruit a diverse and promising cohort of pre- and post-doctoral fellows to engage in individualized, rigorous clinical research training in substance abuse and HIV under the mentorship of the accomplished, interdisciplinary faculty at the University of California, San Diego. Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Robert K. Heaton, TRAIN Director or TRAIN.
