AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

Does physical activity done at an intensity lower than currently recommended reduce the risk of developing cancer?

We propose to investigate risk of developing cancer in a cohort of 100,000 AoU participants using NCIs Activities Completed over Time in 24-hours (ACT24) recall system (doi.org/10.1249/MSS.0000000000001428), and research grade accelerometers. Cases of incident cancer will be captured via linkage to state cancer registries.
