The Institute for the Interdisciplinary Study of Decision making at New York University, in partnership with The Kavli Foundation, is launching the most ambitious study of human beings ever conducted: The Kavli HUMAN Project (Human Understanding through Measurement and ANalysis)
What are the roots of human behavior? How do biology, behavior, and the environment interact with one another to make humans… human? How can we apply what we learn about human health and behavior to make public policy more effective? Thanks to new technologies and advances in fields like neuroscience, genetics, and urban informatics, we can break down the silos between these and other disciplines to unlock novel insights into human behavior and allow for the crafting of scientifically driven public policy. The Kavli HUMAN Project will be the most audacious study of human beings ever conducted, involving some 10,000 New York City residents and lasting 10-20 years. Click here to learn more.
