The mission of BioPop: Integrative Biopsychosocial Research in Population Health is threefold:
To conduct innovative, interdisciplinary, and multi-method life-course research on: 1) social and familial relationships and health; 2) stress, resilience, and health; 3) mental health and healthcare; and 4) the biological pathways that mediate these relationships;
To provide training, mentorship, and education to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students, post-doctoral fellows, and faculty on key methodological and substantive priority areas in population health; and
To collaborate with local and global community members and health organizations to devise practical solutions in improving and sustaining population health.
We strive to conduct all of the above activities in collaboration and consultation with Schools and Departments across the UW–Madison and other academic institutions around the state, nation and world; governmental and non-governmental research entities; and local, state, national and international public health organizations.
