AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

To develop or optimize a non-invasive BIOMARKER that can be used to measure the experience of stress in children and adults.

The impact of psychosocial stress on child and adult health risk is increasingly appreciated. The measurement of this exposure is currently poor, and All of Us has the opportunity to develop or refine biomarkers that could help push this field of research forward in a valid way for the future. Such biomarkers could be a part of individual studies of stress and disease, and could also be used as a gold standard to develop and validate new and better surveys to measure stress.
