Biology and Behavior Across the Lifespan Organized Research Center

The Biology and Behavior Across the Lifespan (BBAL) Organized Research Center investigates the management of disease, the optimization of health, and the ways in which biological findings can influence disease prevalence and progression.

Recognized by the University of Maryland, Baltimore as a Center of Excellence in 2012, BBAL is directed by Barbara Resnick, PhD, RN, CRNP, FAAN, FAANP, and Eun-Shim Nahm, PhD, RN, FAAN. The center provides numerous activities to support its researchers in training, service, and discovery.

Mission

The Center for Biology and Behavior Across the Lifespan (BBAL) promotes the conduct of interdisciplinary research related to the influence of biology and behavior on health and health outcomes across the lifespan.

Vision

The BBAL Center strives to serve as a center for shared thinking — within the School of Nursing and across the University of Maryland, Baltimore — aimed at the development of pioneering research ideas and interventions to promote and sustain health in all people, from infancy to old age. The center will provide a core for the pooling of resources and sharing of data across a wide variety of projects related to biological and behavioral outcomes. Its members will provide leadership within the School of Nursing to guide research related to biology and behavior across the lifespan.
