The NIH recently awarded Dr. Rick Gilmore (Penn State), Dr. Karen Adolph (NYU) and Dr. Catherine Tamis-LeMonda (NYU) a $6.3 million grant to study infant development between 12- and 24-months. The large scale project will recruit 900 mother-infant pairs who will provide an hour of video data in the home environment. Dr. Koraly Pérez-Edgar is a collaborator on the project providing expertise in socio-emotional development and behavior coding. Overall, the project will provide researchers with a wealth of data that will be stored in Databrary, supporting the call in developmental science for big data and open science.
