More background on Kavli from thehumanproject.org:

“The HUMAN Project is a new tool for solving society’s toughest challenges today. That tool, our research platform formed by the data provided by our participants, can help advance research to understand what makes us well and what makes us ill by measuring the feedback mechanisms between biology, behavior, and our environment in the bio-behavioral complex.”
