Geospatial Research Accelerator for Precision Population Health (GRAPPH)

Geospatial Research Accelerator for Precision Population Health (GRAPPH)

CCTST members, Drs. Cole Brokamp and Andrew Beck, have established the Geospatial Research Accelerator for Precision Population Health (GRAPPH), a shared research facility and hub that works to democratize the use of geospatial methodology and data.  

Termed “geomarkers”, these data include community- and individual-level exposures and characteristics, such as substandard housing, greenspace, air pollution, poverty, and crime. Substantial infrastructure investment and methodological development in conjunction with meaningful community engagement and partnership is taking place in order to harness the full potential of these data to predict and prevent adverse health outcomes.

GRAPPH is housed within the Data Management and Analysis Core (DMAC) in the Division of Biostatistics & Epidemiology (DBE) at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center (CCHMC) and currently provides support through both the CCTST consulting and BERD voucher system and as a budgeted component of extramural funding across the Academic Health Center for research, clinical, and quality improvement projects that utilize geospatial data and methods.

Please contact Cole Brokamp if you are interested in learning more about the data and services that GRAPPH provides.
