The Russell Sage Foundation, in collaboration with the Ford Foundation, invites proposals for its integrating biology and social science knowledge programme. This supports innovative social science research on social and economic outcomes that improves understanding of the interactive mechanisms by which environmental influences affect biological mechanisms, and vice versa.
