Welcome.

The Center for Health Behavior Research (CHBR) is located in the Department of Behavioral and Community Health at the University of Maryland School of Public Health. The Center contributes to the departmental vision of applying the science, theory and practice of public health towards the enhancement of the population health status.

The Center fosters a team of investigators crossing disciplinary boundaries (genetics, exposure assessment, neuro-cognitive science, drug dependence, health behavior, epidemiology, medicine and pharmacology) to solve complex public health problems.
