We would like to obtain some information from your about needs and gaps in the behavioral, social and systems research realm. Please share your insights and opinions here:


The purpose of this symposium is to provide faculty and staff with information about the newly formed Translational Research Communities (TRCs) and other resources offered by the ICTR, and to present the first in a series of Behavioral, Social, and Systems Science seminars on Integrating Research Into the Health System.  Diana Gumas will present how EPIC can be used by researchers, not only for recruitment purposes, but  to access data for use in clinical research studies. Presentations given at the symposium will include new and exciting projects by investigators who have successfully employed EPIC. This free event will include lunch, which will give researchers and opportunity to network and to make new connections.

We plan to release an RFA in 2015 to facilitate state-of-the-art interdisciplinary research related to the theme of using big (and little) data for behavioral, social, and systems science research.

The Behavioral, Social, and Systems Science (BSSS) Community is designed to create an academic home and collaborative community for diverse scientists from across Johns Hopkins University who are conducting research in the areas of health and behavior, biopsychosocial interactions, social and cultural factors in health, health systems and health services,  health IT, and methodologies. The BSSS Community will serve as a catalyst to stimulate highly innovative researchers and research programs that expand the translation and dissemination of this research, and facilitate new methodologies for solving current health systems, community, and population level challenges, through systematic interdisciplinary approaches.
