The College of Health and Human Sciences brings together scientists to enhance research that broadly addresses informing behavioral choices, improving human health, and enhancing quality of life. Our interdisciplinary research makes a global impact, enhancing the lives of people living in Indiana, throughout the United States and around the world.

With the introduction of our seven strategic research themes, representing 244 HHS faculty, we've set the course for exploring the bounds of interdisciplinary research.

Our research themes include:

  • Lifespan Development
  • Prevention, Diagnosis and Treatment of Disease and Disabilities
  • Promotion of Health and Wellness
  • Mental Health
  • Neuroscience
  • Social Relationships and Culture
  • Work, Health and Well-being

HHS strives to promote continued scholarly excellence and innovation through the provision of information, resources and enhanced collaboration among scientists as well as stakeholders.
