How does the home environment impact asthma development in children?

This study would look at aspects of the home environment, including: cleaning products, address or block group for GIS mapping, proximity to roadways or certain agricultural or industrial facilities, pets, number of people living in the household, type of flooring, building structure, ventilation, type of heat, mold, and moisture level.

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

AoU’s sample/measures uniquely allow for modeling high-burden disease pathways specified by the biopsychosocial ecological model

Biological, psychological & social domains interact at multiple levels (genes, human & environment microbiomes, stress, behavior, broad SES & environment) outlined by the biopsychosocial ecological model (BPSEM). The BPSEM specifies pathways aligned with the AoU pillars of biology, lifestyle, & environment. Simultaneous examination of the interacting domains and levels of the BPSEM is now computationally possible and ...more »

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

To develop/refine novel technologies (related to GPS or GIS) that could help us better define community contextual exposures.

The built environment is only one contextual exposure of interest to investigators who study these factors in relation to disease (and even these function variably across rural and urban areas). New technology could assist in better clarifying a fuller scope of residential exposures, including what elements/exposures the All of Us participants actually come into contact with.

AoU Research Priorities Use Cases

What aspects of the built environment, policies, and programs most effectively influence healthy lifestyle choices?

An improved understanding of the wide-ranging interplay of community design, programs, policies, worksite health, physician counseling, and other factors in influencing health behaviors and lifestyle choices is crucial to improving health outcomes. Methods could include data collection through wearable technology, validated self-reports, medical reimbursement, predictive analytics, and the unique insights from All of ...more »

What about our environment drives us to become healthy?

We are trained to conduct research to elucidate the causes of morbidity and mortality. A study designed to understand the cause of a given disease, however, is not the same as one designed to understand the root causes of health and quality of life. I suspect there is more to being healthy than riding a bike and eating green vegetables...let's work to find out and then apply that knowledge to design homes, schools, communities ...more »

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 ...more »

What neighborhood conditions promote health?

This project would examine contextual factors that may influence the health outcomes of individuals. Contextual factors include social environment factors (such as social cohesion, crime) and built environment factors (green space, mixed land use, access to healthy food and clinical services). These factors can help or hinder individuals from achieving or maintaining health. Outcomes of interest include obesity, diabetes, ...more »
