BHI Office of Research

In the spirit of advancing interdisciplinary behavior and social science, the BHI Office of Research seeks to sponsor and advance the exploration of behavioral health through focused development.  Under the direction of Dr. Susanne Montgomery, Associate Dean of Research and Director of the Office of Research, our office mentors faculty members and selected students in identifying research opportunities, publishing, and developing grant applications.  The BHI Office of Research underscores these efforts by sponsoring monthly symposiums, bi-weekly Grant Writing Support Group, and selected technical assistance for those who have an interest in foundational, National Institutes of Health, and other federal funding opportunities.
