The Prevention and Methodology Training Program (PAMT)

PAMT trainees and leadershipThe interdisciplinary Prevention and Methodology Training Program (PAMT) trains pre-doctoral graduate students and post-doctoral researchers interested in prevention science and statistical methodology. PAMT is funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse through a T32 grant to two well-established and vibrant research centers at Penn State: the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center and the Methodology Center. PAMT's purpose is to produce scientists trained in the integration of prevention science and statistical methodology, and it 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.
