Recovery Act Research and Research Infrastructure “Grand Opportunities” Award.

A team of investigators from LDI CHIBE (Asch and Volpp, Mult PIs) competed successfully for a two year Grand Opportunity award from the National Institute on Aging that will be pivotal to building CHIBE’s research infrastructure.  The project, “Developing Interactive Technologies to Improve Research and Health Behavior,” will support Center investigators in designing, building, testing and refining an IT platform that will: 1) provide investigators an easily customized web-based platform to test behavioral interventions to promote health, including the use of financial incentives, frequent feedback, visual approaches to information, and social networks; 2) provide older Americans, other members of the general public, and public and private sector organizations with a web portal which can facilitate participation in innovative research on behavioral approaches to improve health behavior at low incremental cost.
