Boise State’s Office of Information Technology (OIT) is developing an app that will make data collection simple for study participants and researchers in Dr. Curl’s upcoming study evaluating residential and dietary exposure to glyphosate among pregnant women.
The OIT team will help establish a protocol for participants to submit meal content and provide a mobile application with appropriate infrastructure to log, query and analyze the data as needed.
This is not the first time Dr. Curl has collaborated with Research Computing at Boise State. For Dr. Curl’s pilot study on diet and pesticide exposure among pregnant women, the BSU App Development Team created a MealLogger App for research participants to track their diet throughout their second and third trimesters of pregnancy.
“Showing Boise State’s investment and capacity for website building and app development makes grant proposals look a lot better and be far more robust,” Curl says.
