Paola Giusti-Rodriguez, Ph.D.

Paola Giusti-Rodriguez, Ph.D. has been selected to the class of 2022 for the Center for Underrepresented Research in Addiction (CURA), which provides mentoring and grant-writing training related to substance use research.

Despite many years of discussion, research, and efforts to promote change, a great disparity remains between the presence of African American, Hispanic, Native American, People with Disabilities, and other underrepresented minority (URM) faculty at US research universities and their representation in the US population. This is a problem that will be addressed through the Center for Underrepresented Research in Addiction to promote the advancement of junior faculty members in drug addiction research at research universities. CURA  will then develop career development programs for each participant and together the participant and mentoring team will develop a career development plan.
