The Behavioral & Population Sciences Project Development Team (PDT) supports rigorous research and research program development in the behavioral and population sciences. This may involve basic research on methods and theories, epidemiological research, testing of clinical interventions or applying results to patients, families, and communities. Research may address various areas across the life/disease continuum, including prevention, early detection and treatment of diseases, management of chronic health conditions, healthy lifestyle choices, community and environmental research, public health and end-of-life care.
This PDT aims to increase externally funded interdisciplinary research in the behavioral and population science through mentorship support, project review services, and pilot development funds.
The Behavioral & Population Sciences PDT meets on the first Monday of every month.
