Abstract

The Research Institute on Addictions (RU) sponsors a Minority Research Development Program (MRDP) for minority high school honor students in their junior and senior years. The program s primary goal is to educate youths regarding current alcohol and drug research and treatment approaches. An equally important goal of the program is to encourage minority students to pursue scientific careers by exposing them to various aspects of health-related research. Both goals re accomplished by utilizing a mentor-based curriculum consisting of an independent research project, lectures, laboratory sessions, a group research project, workshops, and site visits. A teacher component is included in the program as well as peer role models. This program is capable of replication for use by other organizations, or of being mod (fled and offered as an undergraduate college course.
