Biosocial studies encompass a set of approaches constituted by the knowledge space generated by the interaction between biology, health, environmental and sociology. This space takes us back to the beginnings of social studies, where biology and social sciences walked side by side. Currently, these studies are being revitalized. Today, biosocial studies are concerned with understanding the evolution of society from this triple perspective: biological, social and health. In this sense, biological research allows us to understand the basic mechanisms of the conformation of society (molecular sociology, sociobiology, etc.), health research allows us to delve into the social determinants of care and biomedical problems (rare diseases, mental illnesses, etc.) and social studies help us to relate biological and care information to implement a more equitable, more democratic and appropriately structured society.
