CAHT-BSSR was formed by COSSA in September 1993 to support the Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research (OBSSR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The Coalition actively monitors and provides information on the importance of the office. Working closely with NIH officials, Members of Congress and their staffs, and other policymakers to advocate for funding for OBSSR, CAHT-BSSR serves as a liaison between NIH and researchers in these disciplines to enhance the behavioral and social science research at NIH.
