The brain, behavior, and the immune system:
     translating science into healthcare advances.

Established in 1996, the Institute for Behavioral Medicine Research functions as an incubator to create and disseminate cutting-edge mind-body research that will enhance individual and community health. It is the cornerstone of a broad research program at OSU in the realm of psychoneuroimmunology (PNI): the study of how the brain interacts with the body's immune system.
