Victor Garcia, professor of anthropology and director of the Mid-Atlantic Research and Training Institute for Community and Behavioral Health, is a mentor faculty member in the Interdisciplinary Research Training Institute, based at the University of Southern California.

IRTI, together with the National Hispanic Science Network, provides a variety of training, mentoring, and networking services to promote the career development of pre-doctoral, post-doctoral, and early career scientists researching drug abuse among Hispanics.

The goal of IRTI is to ensure support for IRTI fellows to conduct, present, and publish their research on substance abuse, including preparing and submitting National Institutes of Health (NIH) research funding proposals.

The institute offers an interdisciplinary summer training program, along with a formal two-year mentorship with an IRTI faculty mentor who is an established expert in the field of Hispanic drug abuse research.  View the IRTI website for more information.
