Yerina Ranjit, an assistant professor of the University of Missouri College of Arts and Science’s Department of Communication, recently received Fordham’s University HIV and Drug Abuse Prevention Research Ethics Training Institute (RETI) fellowship. The award allows her to gain further training in research ethics around HIV prevention and drug use among high-risk populations.
As a fellow, Ranjit will participate in a two-year mentored program and receive continued year-round mentorship primarily through Kaveh Khoshnood, a public health scholar and leading epidemiologist at Yale University, as well as Celia B. Fisher, director of the RETI program.
Ranjit is one of only a handful of candidates selected for the program.
