Russell Sage Foundation: Integrating Biology and Social Science (BioSS)

The Russell Sage Foundation, in collaboration with and support from the Ford Foundation, is accepting Letters of Inquiry (LOIs) to support innovative social science research on social and economic outcomes that improves our understanding of the interactive mechanisms by which environmental influences affect biological mechanisms, and vice versa. This includes research that: (1) estimates how the structured nature of the social environment and intra- and intergenerational social inequalities affect biological processes, (2) identifies which indicators of biological processes interact with the social environment to affect different life domains and how, and (3) yields new conceptual frameworks that holistically characterize the complex relationships among biological, psychological and environmental factors to predict a range of behavioral and social outcomes. Award amount is up to $150,000 over two (2) years. The LOI deadline is August 21, 2017 by 2:00pm EST.
