AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Is there a relationship between exposure to (outdoor) air pollution and development of breast cancer?

Previous research has suggested that women who live in areas with high levels of outdoor air pollution may have a higher risk of breast cancer. We suggest collecting data on participants’ current and previous residence(s) and place(s) of work in order to link geographic location to existing air quality databases. Data collection would be facilitated through map features allowing on-the-go geocoding. Outcome data would be collected through medical records and linkage to cancer registries.

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.
