Next Deadline: May 11, 2011
OBSSR & many NIH institutes & centers encourage behavioral & social science research on the causes and solutions to
health and disabilities disparities in the U.S. population. The primary basic research question is the causes of differences
in the health status of populations (e.g., differences between African Americans vs. European Americans or the
US population as a whole). The goal is to move beyond documenting the existence of health and disability disparities to
addressing causes and solutions.
