Kavli HUMAN Project:
Request for Information

The Kavli HUMAN Project (KHP), a joint initiative of NYU IISDM and the Kavli Foundation, recently released a Request for Information (RFI) asking researchers involved in human health and behavior research to provide the KHP with suggestions for measurements they would want the Project to collect—and methods for collecting their suggested measurement(s)—in addition to those measurements already identified in the KHP Preliminary Study Design (pp. 35-57). The input of the research community is crucial to the success of the KHP, and we hope you will let your colleagues know of this RFI opportunity.


The Kavli HUMAN Project is the first interdisciplinary big data bio-behavioral longitudinal study that will provide a data platform that will be a resource for the entire research community. The KHP will study 10,000 New York City residents for 20 years, gathering measurements across neuroscience, genetics, psychology, economics, sociology, and urban informatics to truly understand the dynamic interplay between biology, behavior, and the environment in the bio-behavioral complex.
