Turning knowledge into practice requires high quality scientific research. Knowledge generated through such research is critical to identifying emerging scientific challenges, formulating appropriate policies through informed decisions, and finding effective solutions for sustainable development. The theoretical thrust of ISER-N’s research programs lies in the investigation of micro-level associations to inform our understanding of emerging macro level social and environmental trends. Methodologically, these investigations embrace longitudinal and multilevel research designs with mixed-method measurements.
Our research conducts are governed by fundamental principles of democratic values that dignify every human being as equal, and strictly adhere to individual rights for privacy. Towards this end, all research programs are mandated to be reviewed and approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB), which is formally designated to approve, monitor, and review biomedical and behavioral research involving humans with the aim of protecting the rights and welfare of every research subject.
