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.

Eating Phenotypes for Childhood Obesity in the Context of Familial Obesity Risk

Principal Investigator: Tanja Kral

The aim of this study is to test the effects of three different types of breakfast on appetite, food intake, and cognitive performance in 8- to 10-year-old children. Using an integrated approach, this research aims to study multiple child eating traits concurrently under states of hunger and satiety. It will examine the impact of short-term appetite and intake regulation on longer-term energy intake control and weight development in a cohort of ethnically diverse normal-weight and obese boys and girls with different familial predispositions to obesity.

Buy 1 Get 1: Role of Grocery Coupons in Promoting Obesogenic Home Food Environments and Eating Behaviors

Principal Investigators: Tanja Kral, Renee Moore

This randomized-controlled trial will test the effects of incentivizing grocery coupon use for the purchase of healthy foods on changes in dietary intake, BMI/waist circumference, home food availability and grocery coupon use among frequent grocery coupon users and non-coupon users. This study is a part of the Penn-CMU Roybal Center on Behavioral Economics and Health pilot projects.
