Apr 19, 2005

The behavioral and social sciences offer significant fundamental insights
into the comprehensive understanding of human health, including disease
etiology and treatment, and the promotion of health and well-being. To
encourage the investigation of the impact of social and behavioral factors
on health and disease, the participating Institutes and Centers invite
qualified researchers to submit research grant applications on methodology
and measurement in the behavioral and social sciences. Methodology and
measurement encompass research design, data collection techniques,
measurement, and data analysis techniques. The goal of this program
announcement is to encourage research that will improve the quality and
scientific power of data collected in the behavioral and social sciences,
relevant to the missions of the NIH Institutes and Centers (ICs). Research
that addresses methodology and measurement issues in diverse populations,
issues in studying sensitive behaviors, issues of ethics in research, issues
related to confidential data and the protection of research subjects, and
issues in developing interdisciplinary, multimethod, and multilevel
approaches to behavioral and social science research is particularly
encouraged, as are approaches that integrate behavioral and social science
research with biomedical, physical, or computational science research or

Inquiries should be directed to Dr. Deborah Olster at 301-451-4286.
