The Social Transition in the North (STN) study was a brilliant research project cut short. The study was designed to better understand the causes and effects of demographic, epidemiologic, and domestic transitions in Alaskan and Russian Far East communities. The project, initially funded by the National Science Foundation (1), was in its third year of data collection when the Principal Investigators were killed in a boating incident off the Russian Far East coast near the city of Providenia, on the Bering Sea. While most of the required data was already collected, their untimely deaths prevented its complete analysis.(Int J Circumpolar Health 2004; 63 suppl 1:3-4)
