Administered in the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center, PAMT’s purpose is to produce scientists trained to integrate substance use prevention science and innovative methodology. PAMT offers a unique opportunity for highly motivated pre- and post-doctoral researchers to continue their training in a synergistic environment that includes some of the top prevention scientists and methodologists in the country.
PAMT leverages the unique expertise of Penn State’s College of Health and Human Development, in collaboration with the College of Liberal Arts. PAMT has been funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse through a T32 grant since 2005. Our most recent funding is for 2021-2026. We’re excited to build on our tradition of excellent training with some new initiatives planned for the next 5 years.
