NIH requests applications for research that will improve understanding of the basic mechanisms of behavior change by bridging work in the laboratory and the field.
This announcement is an NIH Roadmap Initiative. The NIH Roadmap is an innovative approach to accelerate fundamental discovery and translate that knowledge into effective prevention strategies and new treatments. All NIH institutes and centers participate in Roadmap Initiatives.
The goal of this initiative is to establish the groundwork for a unified science of behavior change that uses emerging basic science to accelerate research on common mechanisms of behavior change that are applicable across a broad range of health-related behaviors. By focusing basic research on behavior change, and integrating work across laboratory and field, this initiative should transform the efficacy, effectiveness, and cost efficiency of behavior change interventions.
