SUMMER RESEARCH INSTITUTE
The 2009 Summer Research Institute (SRI) will be held Monday through Wednesday, June 15-17.
The Summer Research Institute provides participants with detailed information and hands-on experience related to initiating and sustaining research on health promotion/disease prevention in underserved populations. The focus of each year’s Summer Research Institute changes. For 2008, the focus was on developing and maintaining a program of research; this year's Institute will focus on adding innovation to maintaining a program of research.
Fifteen research fellows participated in the 2008 Institute. Faculty from academic and health-related institutions in Texas, Florida, Kentucky and Indiana attended. CHPR will cover lodging costs (3 nights) for out-of-town participants, and provide four meals for all participants. Participants are responsible for the registration fee of $150.
Applicants met the following criteria:
- Doctoral preparation (positions may be available for doctoral candidates depending on the number of faculty applicants received);
