The Division has an ambitious three-fold mission consistent with the intramural research program at the National Institutes of Health.
- To design and conduct original and collaborative public health research consistent with our Institute's mission;
- To develop and mentor the next cadre of public health and clinical researchers; and
- To proactively provide professional service throughout the NIH community, other federal agencies, professional entities served by our research mission, and the public at large.
The Division designs research responsive to critical data gaps to advance our understanding of factors that impact human health. Our research is particularly relevant for the health and well-being of the public and its special populations, and utilizes novel methodologies and statistical tools including those developed by the Division investigators. Division investigators identify critical data gaps and design research initiatives to answer etiologic questions or to evaluate interventions aimed at modifying behavior.
