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.

Responses to CPAP Treatment in Obese and Lean Sleep Apnea Patients

Principal Investigator: Pack, Co-Investigator: Kuna 

Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) helps patients with obstructive sleep apnea and other breathing problems to keep their airways open while sleeping. This study seeks to shed light on the effect of CPAP treatment on cardiovascular risk factors in obese and lean patients with moderate to severe obstructive sleep apnea.
