Funded Research Grants
Diet Assessment Grants
- Web-based, multimedia tool for reporting dietary intake among children in both Spanish and English (Principal Investigator (PI): Tom Baranowski, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, TX).
- A mobile telephone food record coupled with image processing software to estimate nutrient intake (PI: Carol Boushey, Purdue University, West Lafayette, IN).
- Camera and voice descriptions of foods captured via cell phones used with adaptive modeling software and automated processing technologies to estimate dietary intake (PI: Rick Weiss, Princeton Multimedia Technologies Corporation, Princeton, NJ).
- Integrated sensor technology for real-time recording of food intake (PI: Alan Kristal, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, Seattle, WA).
Physical Activity Assessment Grants
- A breathing rate sensor, an indoor/outdoor environmental sensor, and an accelerometer will be combined to assess physical activity (PI: Patty Freedson, University of Massachusetts, Amherst).
- Multiple wireless sensors will be combined with an accelerometer-enabled cellular phone to assess physical activity, with the potential to assess other behaviors (PI: Stephen Intille, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge).
- Device to collect motion, heart rate, and location paired with software to integrate location data with GIS systems to measure physical activity within the geospatial context (PI: Kevin Patrick, University of California, San Diego).
Combined Diet and Physical Activity Assessment Grants
- A unified sensor device that captures video images, motion, swallowing, and respiration to create an electronic chronicle of indexed diet and physical activity occasions (PI: Mingui Sun, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA).
