The Behavioral Pharmacology and Health Promotion Laboratory provides training opportunities in human experimental and clinical research for graduate students, undergraduate students, and high school students.


The Department of Psychology at American University has graduate training programs for students interested in advanced study in psychology including a Masters of Arts program and doctoral training programs in Behavioral Neuroscience and Clinical Psychology. BPHP provides training opportunities for interested students from the MA, Behavioral Neuroscience, and Clinical Psychology programs.

BPHP provides opportunities for undergraduate students at American University to gain experience in the design and implementation of human experimental and clinical research as well as data management and analysis. This is vital experience for students who are interested in attending graduate school. Undergraduate research and data assistants (RDAs) attend weekly laboratory meetings and are actively involved in all phases of research in the laboratory. Undergraduate RDAs are asked to commit a minimum of 10 hours a week to the laboratory. Students who are interested in joining the laboratory should contact Dr. Juliano.


High school students in the psychology program at Walt Whitman High School in Bethesda, Maryland can volunteer at BPHP for course credit.
