Social-behavioral research

From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

Social-behavioral research is a broad field of research that most commonly uses the methods of behavioral and social sciences to study human subjects.[1] This is sometimes contrasted with biomedical research (for instance, for the purposes of making applications to an Institutional Review Board (IRB) for approval of human subjects research.)[2] However, social-behavioral research may overlap with areas of research traditionally consider biomedical; for instance, the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) at the US National Institutes of Health (NIH) has a Social and Behavioral Research Branch, founded in 2004.[3]
