Networks to Develop Priority Areas of Behavioral and Social Research
The NIA’s Division of Behavioral and Social Research (BSR) currently supports 12 research networks to provide infrastructure for advancing the development of high priority areas of behavioral and social research relevant to aging. The research networks encourage growth and development in emerging areas through meetings, conferences, small scale pilots, training, educational activities, and dissemination of resources to the field at large. Networks are typically interdisciplinary and are comprised of multiple institutions, as they are intended to serve the broader community of behavioral and social researchers engaged in aging-relevant research in each designated scientific area.
