The Center for Health Incentives and Behavioral Economics (CHIBE), housed within the Department of Medical Ethics & Health Policy at the Perelman School of Medicine, conducts behavioral economic research that makes significant contributions to reducing the disease burden from major U.S. public health problems, such as tobacco dependence, obesity, and medication non-adherence. CHIBE’s mission is to inform health policy, improve health care delivery and increase healthy behavior.
CHIBE offers resources for investigators applying behavioral economics principles to critical health issues. Resources include multiple pilot grant funding opportunities, health technology platforms, and more. To learn more about these opportunities and tools to see how they may assist with your projects visit the CHIBE website.
