FMHI welcomes students to 2024 Summer Research Institute

Students and mentors gather for SRI@FMHI orientation.

The 2024 Summer Research Institute cohort gathers for orientation.

The Louis de la Parte Florida Mental Health Institute welcomed thirteen undergraduate students to campus last week as part of the Summer Research Institute (SRI@FMHI). 

The SRI@FMHI is designed for students interested in building their research skills within the context of substance use and co-occurring disorders to help them prepare for a senior thesis and/or graduate school. The program received over 130 applications during the recruitment cycle this year, which will be the final year of the SRI@FMHI program funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

The SRI@FMHI consists of four components: an independent research project conducted with guidance from a USF College of Behavioral and Community Sciences faculty mentor; research seminars; professional development seminars; and skill-building workshops.

Over the next 11 weeks, students will work intensively with faculty mentors on their research projects. In addition, students will gain experience with research ethics and Institutional Review Boards practices and will participate in a community rotation to gain experience with mental health and substance use services. Students will present their research projects during Research Day on Wednesday, July 31 from noon to 4 p.m.
