Training in Advanced Data Analytics to End Drug-Related Harms (TADA)

Emory University presents a National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) funded T32 pre-doctoral training program.

Goal of TADA

The goal of TADA is to prepare a diverse cadre of 21st century social and behavioral science researchers who will help end drug-related epidemics by applying advanced data analytics and computational methods (for example: geospatial methods, sociometric analyses, machine learning and natural language processing).
