Optimization of physical and psychological health requires a cells-to-society approach which considers a range of biological and social determinants. The complex social environments individuals navigate throughout their lives along with broader societal influences are fundamental to peopleā€™s wellness.

The Center for Social & Behavioral Science (CSBS) is dedicated to facilitating research cutting across disciplines to understand the processes by which biology, behavior, and the social environment can support wellness, and ultimately flourishing. The knowledge yielded by such research can be leveraged to create effective approaches to health among people from diverse backgrounds
