MyCap – A Configurable Mobile Application For Patient-Reported Data Collection
Paul Harris, PhD

June 20, 2018 | 1:00pm ET

Vanderbilt has recently developed a generalizable solution for supporting studies requiring patient-centered mobile applications. The application (MyCap) was designed to enable researchers in need of patient-centered longitudinal data collection tools to rapidly design and deploy secure, patient-centered smartphone applications. MyCap supports temporal-based administration of surveys and ResearchKit Activetasks (leveraging smartphone accelerometers, camera, microphone, geolocation services) and can be configured for an individual project without programming. MyCap builds on the REDCap platform and is freely available through the REDCap consortium for local researcher utilization. This presentation will provide an overview of the mobile application platform and demonstrate study setup and deployment for an individual project.

      Zebrafish Lab Provides Insights into Diseases of the Nervous System

      Developmental biologist Sarah Kucenas is gaining insights to the nervous systems by using zebrafish as a study model. (Photos by Dan Addison, University Communications) UVA Today June 11, 2018 Fariss Samarrai I’m fascinated with unanswered questions,” University of Virginia developmental biology professor Sarah Kucenas said. “I like the challenge of finding answers.” Kucenas describes science as akin to shining a flashlight on a space in the dark and seeing what’s there, and then shining the light on what’s beyond the original arc of light. She wants to know what’s there and beyond, and she says she’s stubborn in her quest…
