PIRE is prepared to assist researchers who submit applications with startup funding, mentorship, administrative assistance, and collaborative scientific support. Employment is contingent upon successful awards.
PIRE has a strong commitment to research dissemination and moving science to practice and practice to science. The implementation of our work is demonstrated in peer-reviewed journal articles, reports for government and lay audiences and professional presentations.
