Research IDEA

UPDB Research IDEA
(Initiating Data Exploration and Analysis)

Many investigators have research ideas that may make use of the Utah Population Database. Usually the researcher has initial plans about the research design and various parameters that define a potential project.

To facilitate the development of these initial plans, to provide guidance on preparing RGE and IRB applications, and to initiate interaction between the Pedigree and Population Resource staff and the investigator, we suggest using the IDEA website to submit your research ideas. Once we receive this information, we will follow up with the investigator.
