Throughout its existence, FRI has been committed to both clinical and research training. FRI promotes pre-and post-doctoral training experiences designed to facilitate careers in behavioral, public health, and public policy research. Significant research experience is gained by junior research scientists and research assistants through participation in the many research studies conducted by senior research scientists at FRI. These experiences include opportunities for publication, presentation, and research mentorship. The senior research scientists have university affiliations and appointments at various public and private educational institutions, such as Johns Hopkins University, State University of New York at Buffalo, Towson University, University of Baltimore, University of Maryland, University of North Carolina at Wilmington, University of Washington, and University of California Los Angeles.
