Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics Research

CHIBE researchers apply concepts from the field of behavioral economics to design, implement, and evaluate interventions that improve health and build knowledge about efficacy, cost and effectiveness. 

Basic Science Core Request for Applications

The Basic Science Core aims to support laboratory or low-cost field studies that will shed light on mechanisms that can generate behavior change.  In contrast to previous large-scale field studies, which have often combined multiple mechanisms into one intervention in order to maximize impact on behavior, basic science projects supported by the Core focus on disentangling and precisely identifying the impacts of individual mechanisms.  CHIBE researchers interested in applying for project support can click here for more information.

Helping People to Exercise Regularly

Principal Investigators: Hafalir / Xiao 

Regular gym visits might prevent health problems that occur later in life, but many people find it hard to maintain a commitment to attend regularly. Pre-commitment devices are one possible tool which could help sustain commitment to healthy behavior. This project seeks to improve methods for helping older individuals exercise regularly.
