ASU in Washington, D.C. Sponsors Honored Guest at CABHP

National Institutes of Health (NIH) Behavioral and Social Science Research Director, William T. Riley (Ph.D.), recently dropped by for a visit to discuss funding, strategic planning, science policy updates, and special projects.

Some of those projects include for example; the nationwide Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes study whose aim is to enhance the health of children for generations to come, and the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development longitudinal study that looks at about 10,000 children from ages 9-10 through early adulthood to assess factors that influence individual brain development trajectories and functional outcomes. 

He also discussed NIH’s highly ambitious ‘All of Us’ Research Program, a longitudinal effort to gather data from one million or more people living in the United States to accelerate research and improve health by taking into account individual differences in lifestyle, socioeconomics, environment, and biology.  The aim of the program is to uncover paths toward delivering precision medicine – or individualized prevention, treatment, and care – for all of us.
