RPC Research Projects are led by a faculty director or directors and a team of faculty and Ph.D researchers, with support from undergraduate interns. RPC Researchers apply a particular academic discipline or research method to subjects and topics directly or indirectly related to at least one of the four areas of RPC research (diagnosis, historical and social context, prevention, and treatment). Each project includes field or laboratory study and team work as well as individual work. Projects may employ both qualitative and quantitative instruments of inquiry. Research Teams generate a variety of final products, such as monographs, edited collections, peer-reviewed journal articles, white papers, and popular articles.
