Learning for Early Careers in Addiction & Diversity (LEAD)

The Learning for Early Careers in Addiction and Diversity (LEAD) Program provides training to early-career research scientists from racial/ethnic minority groups that are underrepresented in the substance use and substance use disorder research field.
The LEAD Program uses the NIDA Clinical Trials Network (CTN) as a platform for training early-career investigators. This 3-year training program is based at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and visiting scholars spend three summers in a 4-week intensive program at UCSF. During the academic year, scholars work with their primary mentor to collaborate on substance use disorder treatment research conducted in the CTN, develop a professional research network, and conduct a pilot study that will serve as a preliminary study for subsequent NIH funding. The program provides travel and housing funds for scholars, as well as pilot study funding. The 2020 summer program begins on June 29th and ends July 24th. Learn more about the program at https://psych.ucsf.edu/lead/summerprogram.
The application deadline is December 27, 2019.  See Announcement.
