OppNet is a trans-NIH initiative to expand funding of basic behavioral and social sciences research (b-BSSR). Basic-BSSR furthers our understanding of fundamental mechanisms and patterns of behavioral and social functioning, relevant to the Nation's health and well-being, as they interact with each other, with biology, and the environment.

The primary NCI contact for this initiative is Dr. Paige McDonald, Chief of the Basic and Biobehavioral Research Branch in the NCI Division of Cancer Control and Population Sciences.
