AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Conduct research to determine if chronic conditions such as diabetes can be improved through non-medication methods

There is a lot of controversy on whether a disease can be treated based primarily on a change of diet. With this study I would test the theory with participants from various groups to determine if the condition could be improved through diet and also determine is medication is needed for improvement

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What are the risk factors (genetic, environmental, other biological) for developing epilepsy later in life?

Initial data (e.g., demographic) and data that are noted routinely as a part of healthcare maintenance (e.g., anthropomorphic factors, blood pressure, cholesterol, serum creatinine, etc.) could be collected longitudinally and then evaluated in terms of onset of epilepsy later in life.
Justification: as the US population ages, the incidence and prevalence of epilepsy is expected to increase, given the association of epilepsy... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What hypertension medicine regimen is most effective to prevent complications (kidney, heart, and brain) over the lifecourse?

Blood pressure and anti-hypertensive medication use will be collected at baseline through physical examination and medical history taking as well as from the EHR. Track blood pressure and changes in medication to examine different regimens and degrees of blood pressure control as predictors of vascular complications, while using continuing medical care to understand the role of potential co-morbidities and medication... more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Common blood pressure (BP) trajectories across the lifespan and their impact on cardiovascular diseases

Following AoU participants for decades could uncover common trajectories of BP across lifespan and their associations/impact on cardiovascular diseases (CVD). AoU’s size/diversity also enables precise measure of the associations by different subgroups (e.g., race, sex, social factors, presence of multiple risk factors). This could lead to refined risk predictions for CVD and further shed light on optimal timing for initiating... more »
