The overall goal of MIDARP is to develop the capacity at Hunter College to support drug abuse research through the following objectives: Provide underrepresented minority faculty with drug abuse research knowledge and skill development through the conduct of research projects and other professional development activities. Encourage underrepresented minority students to pursue drug abuse research careers by providing them with educational enrichment and research experiences. Strengthen the underlying institutional infrastructure needed to support drug abuse research. Undergraduate students supported by MIDARP are highly qualified students from underrepresented populations. They must be interested in pursing careers in drug abuse research and working in the laboratory of a MIDARP investigator.
