The Summer Research with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) program is an excellent opportunity for Asian American & Pacific Islander students to receive hands-on experience in drug abuse research with senior investigators over the summer:
Summer Research with the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) encourages students from groups underrepresented in the sciences to pursue careers in biomedical and behavioral research. Through the program, high school and undergraduate students from underrepresented groups are introduced to the exciting field of substance abuse and addiction research via research placements with some of our most distinguished scientists. Students work with leading investigators for 8-10 weeks during the summer. The experience may include formal courses, participation in meetings, data collection, data analysis, interviewing, laboratory experiments, manuscript preparation, library research, literary reviews, and much more.
Program participants in Ohio will be based at The Ohio State University. Click here for an application and more information on the program.

Summer Research with NIDA is now in its sixteenth year. Since the program’s inception in 1997, more than 700 students have gained valuable experience in substance abuse and addiction research, and more than 200 sites have participated.
