Mission 1

Bringing an Experimental Medicine Approach to the Science of Behavior Change: A Hands-on Introduction to the NIH SOBC Program Researchers world-wide are coalescing around promising approaches to advance a mechanism-focused behavior change science to address the tremendous disease burden posed by maladaptive behaviors, including overeating and unhealthy diets. Indeed, supported by the National Institutes of Health Common Fund, the Science of Behavior Change (SOBC) Program seeks to make behavior change research more impactful, targeted, and systematic by promoting a common, mechanism-focused, experimental medicine approach. In this pre-conference workshop led by members of the SOBC Program and other like-minded researchers from around the globe, attendees will be introduced to SOBC and learn about insights, initial findings, and resources from this initiative. Attendees will also get firsthand experience with the SOBC method and resources by applying them to their own research interests. In addition, workshop participants will engage in interactive discussions about the challenges, opportunities, and next steps in the area of behavior change science, particularly as it intersects with the interests and priorities of the Society for the Science of Ingestive Behavior.
