AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

How do exposures to multiple environmental stressors impact chronic disease risk

The goal would be to examine the associations between multiple environmental stressors (air pollutants, temperature, etc) on chronic disease risk, and how these associations are modified by inherent characteristics, lifestyle factors, and the built and natural environments. This would require current & historical residential/work addresses and appending environmental data. This would provide more information on how these factors interact in a wider range of individuals than previous studies.

The remaining questions allow you to outline in more detail the information needed to address your research question. The series of questions allow up to five entries. If you have more than five entries, please try to prioritize them and enter the remainder in the final field. When done, click Submit at the bottom. No

Select your required Data Item #1, which is most important to your study. This would be an item that needs to be generated and collected from different sources using various procedures, tools, techniques, assays, etc. If not in the current selection, please enter it in the textbox below. Geocode

By what method will Data Item #1 be obtained? This may Include procedures, tools, techniques, assays, and analytical approaches for the collection, measurement, or analysis of data. If you do not find the required method, you may enter it in the textbox below. Survey
