NIH Behavioral Science Office Identifies Research Accomplishments from the Field

The National Institutes of Health (NIH), through its Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR), has released a series of fact sheets highlighting research accomplishments from the field of behavioral science. Ten research areas are mentioned on a new resource page, including improving sleep, managing chronic pain, treating depression, and reducing tobacco use, among others. These areas are examples of some of the ways in which NIH-funded behavioral and social science research has helped our collective understanding of human health and disease.

OBSSR is the coordinating center at NIH for behavioral and social science research across the agency. It plays an important role in promoting the field and ensures the inclusion of behavioral and social science research across NIH priorities.
