Psychosocial and Behavioral Mechanisms in Bariatric Surgery (R01)


This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) will support research to measure psychosocial and behavioral factors in individuals undergoing bariatric surgery to examine mechanisms of behavior change and how they relate to post-surgical success and risk. The goals of this funding opportunity announcement are to support science that will ultimately help: 1) Improve the ability to identify who is at risk for sub-optimal weight loss, weight regain, and short- or long-term adverse metabolic/physiologic or behavioral outcomes based on behavioral or psychological characteristics and 2) Inform the development of new treatment approaches to be used pre and/or post-surgery to minimize risks and improve outcomes or allow for more tailored patient and procedure selection.
