Articles in this issue provide an overview of the initiative funded by the National Institutes of Health to advance an integrated science approach to basic behavioral and social research on resilience. The goal of the initiative is to elucidate human resilience within a general framework that encompasses a dynamic and multisystem approach, including multiple levels of analysis, time scales, contexts, and outcomes. This commentary describes the evolution of resilience definitions and methods toward a multisystem integrated framework, discusses the four empirical studies reported in this issue with regard to their unique goals and potential contributions to integrated resilience science, and concludes with an evaluation of progress toward a dynamic, multisystem resilience framework for research.
