During her prominent career, Dr. White Riley helped establish the NIH’s Office of Behavioral and Social Sciences Research (OBSSR). For the last nine years, OBSSR has honored her with a sponsored lecture by an eminent behavioral and social sciences scholar. This year OBSSR will expand the observance of her enduring influence on NIH with a panel of Early Stage Investigators (i.e., within 10 years of terminal degree).
If you would like to be one of the panelists, submit the abstract of an article that has been published after January 2015, or is currently in-press. NIH’s Matilda White Riley Honors Selection Committee will rank these articles by how well they demonstrate behavioral and social scientific excellence in areas within NIH’s mission and Dr. White Riley’s vision. The deadline for submissions is April 15, 2016. More details on this opportunity are provided in this Call for Abstracts.
