Matilda White Riley Early Stage Investigators Paper Competition
submission period is open for the 11th NIH Matilda White Riley Behavioral and Social Sciences Honors Early Stage Investigators (ESI, within 10 years of their terminal degree) paper competition. OBSSR will pay the travel expenses for up to five ESI honorees to present the findings from their
accepted paper and participate in a moderated discussion of future research possibilities during the meeting. Only one submission per ESI, please.
The submission deadline is February 16, 2018, 9 a.m. ET.
Annual Summer Institute on Randomized Behavioral Clinical Trials
in collaboration with NHLBI will hold the Eighteenth Annual Summer Institute on Randomized Behavioral Clinical Trials on July 8-19, 2018, in Warrenton, Virginia. The purpose of the multi-day training is to provide a thorough grounding in the conduct of randomized clinical trials to researchers interested in developing competence in the planning, design, and execution of randomized clinical trials involving behavioral interventions. There is no fee to apply.
The deadline for submitting a completed application is February 23, 2018.
Research Priorities for All of Us Research Program
All of Us Research Program invites you to submit your ideas of important research questions the program could answer. This input will help the program identify new features to add to the All of Us platform to support research across a range of health topics and advance precision medicine.
The program requests submissions by February 23, 2018.
CHIPS Research Program Training Institute
you are a child psychiatry resident, postdoctoral fellow, or junior faculty member with a strong interest in mental health research for children and adolescents, you are invited to apply to the Child Intervention, Prevention, and Services (CHIPS) program training institute to be held May 21-24, 2018 in Baltimore, MD. Funded through a five-year grant from the National Institute of Mental Health, this interdisciplinary training consortium will help enhance your career and help you find direction and faculty mentors.

Webinar: From Basic Behavioral Science to Interventions for Addictive Behaviors
Join OBSSR Director William
T. Riley, Ph.D., on February 27, 2018 at 2:00 p.m. ET for a director’s series webinar titled “A translational journey: From basic behavioral science to interventions for addictive behaviors.” Drs. Warren Bickel (Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute) and Samuel McClure (Arizona State University) will present a translational research program that explores the application of basic behavioral findings on delay discounting, decision science, and the neural underpinnings of these processes to the
development of interventions for alcohol and drug abuse, obesity and other behavioral risk factors.
Screening and Referral for Social Determinants of Health Meeting
Save the date for the Screening and Referral for Social Determinants of Health: Innovative Health Care Applications and Future Directions meeting to be held on May 3, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on the NIH main campus in Bethesda, MD (Porter Neuroscience Research Center, building
In 2014, the National Academy of Medicine (formerly the Institute of Medicine) recommended the standard capture of 12 health-related social and behavioral measures in electronic health records (EHR). Social and behavioral measures are now routinely collected in many EHR systems and are increasingly
being used in clinical care and population health assessment. Routine screening for a patient’s unmet social needs and adverse health behaviors, combined with referral to precision interventions to reduce the patient’s health risks associated with these “social determinants,” is an emerging trend in
This one-day meeting will highlight recent innovative applications and ongoing research, and facilitate dialogue between scientific researchers in the field and staff from NIH and other federal agencies regarding future research directions. A registration link will be provided soon.
