The Erasmus University Rotterdam Institute for Behavior and Biology investigates what makes people unique. We are an interdisciplinary research institute that links the social sciences with biology and health. Specifically, our research aims to integrate insights from biology (e.g. genetics, hormones, neurotransmitters, brain images), the social sciences (e.g. economics, psychology), and epidemiology (e.g. mental and cardio-vascular health) to address classic research questions in the “mother” disciplines, such as the causes of disease or the effects of public policy on school performance of children.
The institute is a platform that inspires and nurtures collaborative research within this interdisciplinary context, bringing together leading scholars from the Netherlands and around the world. Read more about the history of EURIBEB here.
