Welcome to the Institute for Translational Research in Adolescent Behavioral Health website! At the Institute, we are excited to offer student scholars a one-of-a-kind education and training program in translational research in adolescent behavioral health. Scholars of this Institute benefit from:
- A team of mentors comprised of local community agency leaders, academic specialists, and national experts in the field of adolescent behavioral health,
- Learning experiences provided from web based graduate courses and participation in the Children’s Mental Health Research and Policy Conference,
- Experience conducting a service-learning research project in a community-based setting relevant to alcohol and drug abuse, as well as other behavioral health issues in adolescents,
- Exposure to the latest science and nationally recognized experts in alcohol and drug abuse, comorbidities, and translational science,
- Funding for course credits and related program activities.
We look forward to sharing the work of our Institute Scholars!
