Goal 1: Promote Human Health

Achieving Excellence in Health and Science Communication

At least two thirds of US adults use the internet to access health information. The accuracy and quality of health and science information found on news media websites, corporate websites of the healthcare industry, blogs of healthcare providers and social media networks varies widely. Nevertheless, this information can have a profound influence on the healthcare-related decision-making of patients. The anti-vaccination ...more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Incentivizing Translational Research

Support for scientific research depends on making a compelling case that we contribute to the health of Americans and the health of the US economy. This idea is to address the critical challenge of making basic research relevant to the lives of Americans by incentivizing NHBLI researchers to engage meaningfully in translational research.

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

e-cigarette and mental health

What is nicotine addiction in the absence of other materials? What cues are associated with smoking? We would like to see brain reward studies in special populations. We are also interested in understanding possible reduced harm in people who use e-cigarettes in cessation attempts, and understanding whether e-cigs are a gateway to other risky behaviors for young people who are experimenting.

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Implementation science research to reduce adverse effects of SCD

From various publications and reports, we have characterized the risks associated with sickle cell disease (SCD) and understand many of the barriers for treatment of SCD in LMICs. How can implementation science research be used to reduce the negative outcomes of SCD in low/middle income countries?

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Develop common-sense standards for obesity research

Obesity research is riddled with methodological problems that are rarely challenged, leading to the perpetuation of misinformation and interventions that do harm. Given the two-thirds of the population who are classified as higher weight and thus subject to these interventions, it is past time to clean up the basic scientific flaws in this research area. For a quick summary of a couple of these issues, see Poodle Science: ...more »

Goal 2: Reduce Human Disease

Team Science in Global Health: Reducing the Burden of Chronic Heart, Lung, Blood Disorders in Developing Countries

By 2025, the world we will either meet or fall short of the goal to reduce the burden of chronic diseases globally by 25% by 2025. Most of this disease burden occurs in developing countries. Multi-disciplinary, multi-national partnerships to combat chronic heart, lung and blood disorders are needed for the most resolute, effective and sustainable responses. We need a program of research that addresses the highly variable ...more »

Goal 3: Advance Translational Research

Community Collaborative Research Targeting Populations with CVD

In what ways can researchers better collaborate with community representatives from populations with high prevalence / morbidity / mortality of cardiovascular disease (CVD) to enhance and sustain interventions and achieve improved health outcomes? How can a combination of health behaviors and risk factors be used to conduct community-engaged research to prevent and treat CVD, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) ...more »
