Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Physical Activity and Sedentary Behavior Research

There is a need to enhance research efficiency for physical activity and sedentary behavior research by facilitating standardization of the definition of sedentary behavior; employing research strategies that support reliable, valid, and efficient ways to measure and analyze sedentary behaviors; supporting better approaches for data harmonization to promote comparability across studies; and facilitating the use of platforms... more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Building Effective Interventions for Heart-Healthy Eating

What translational science approaches are best able to test individual, community, and environmental approaches for increasing adherence to heart-healthy dietary recommendations, such as the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) diet? What are the most effective types of interventions (e.g., personal coaching, print material, interactive internet content, faith-based community programs, campaigns) and tools... more »

Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Basic understanding on the mechanisms of overeating

We have an in depth understanding of the effects nutrients and diet have on the development of chronic disease, yet very little research funding has gone to understanding the basic mechanisms of eating behavior and how to successful change diet. There are currently no study sections at NIH that specialize in nutrition and/or human eating behavior, and therefore proposals in this subject area get farmed out to other study... more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Behavioral and Clinical Researcher Interactions

A critical challenge is the need to bring together basic behavioral scientists interested in understanding human behavior at a fundamental level, including how and why people become motivated and capable of undertaking behavioral changes, with clinical researchers interested in developing and testing new strategies for tackling resistant behavioral problems such as obesity and non-adherence.
