IBH researchers have multi-faceted roles within the larger Brandeis community.  They teach interdisciplinary courses at the graduate and/or undergraduate levels, serve as mentors, advisors, and as PhD committee chairs and members.  IBH itself plays an educational role as well as the home for PhD and MPP students focused on behavioral health. IBH also houses a doctoral training program funded by the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA).  We briefly describe the PhD program, the NIAAA training grant, and the MPP program here.  More information about the Heller School and all of its degree programs may be found here.
