This year marks OBSSR’s 25th anniversary, and we have an exceptional slate of honorees who will present recent and exciting innovations in behavioral and social sciences research.

The 2020 distinguished lecturer is Toni Antonucci, Ph.D., Elizabeth M. Douvan Collegiate Professor of Psychology and Program Director and Research Professor in the Life Course Development Program at the Institute for Social Research at the University of Michigan. Dr. Antonucci’s research has improved our understanding of how social relations and networks impact health across the lifespan and particularly how social relations influence one’s ability to manage life’s challenges – a particularly timely research area given the pandemic challenges in the context of constrained social relations. Dr. Antonucci has received funding from various NIH Institutes including NIMH and NIA, and is a recipient of the Research Career Development Award.
