SCISIPBIO: Maximizing the Value of Sex-Inclusive Research Policies through Analytical Rigor

Determine the impact of analytical approaches on the accurate and inaccurate reporting of sex-specific effects, identify factors that inform decisions about analytical approaches to sex-based data, and disseminate tools for designing and evaluating studies that consider sex as a biological variable. This is the NSF component of a joint NSF/NIH initiative.

Center for Childhood Obesity Prevention

The goal of the CCOP is to establish a broad-based, multi-disciplinary disease prevention center, rooted in a team science approach and spanning the full translational spectrum, to bring together research in complex disease origins, epidemiology, and social systems to address the childhood obesity crisis. Efforts will continue to build state-of-the-art institutional biomedical research infrastructure to support this goal, as well as continuing to build and train a critical mass of scientists focused on creating the base of evidence for strategies to improve child health.
