Jennifer Kam, a new Assistant Professor in the Department of Communication, has been awarded a competitive two-year training fellowship through the Early Stage Mentoring for NIDA Research Program. As part of an R25 training grant, this fellowship is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) and is managed by the National Hispanic Science Network (NHSN) on Drug Abuse and Michigan State University. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide mentorship and support for early-career research investigators that are applying for R01 funding with NIDA, to develop their expertise in the area of Hispanic drug abuse, and to help them build interdisciplinary relationships. The fellowship lasts two years (2014-2016), provides Dr. Kam with an official R01-funded mentor, includes annual fellowship meetings, and offers support for pilot research and travel to scientific meetings.
