Connecting researchers
with women and men.

Recently, Stauffer had the honor of partnering with the Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation on the Army of Women (AOW). An innovative new initiative connecting women and men of all ages, ethnicities and locations, with researchers committed to the fight against breast cancer.

AOW members may register for online studies HERE.

Whether a breast cancer survivor or never affected by the disease, every individual over the age of 18 is welcome to participate. Members may also share research studies which they are deemed ineligible to participate in with friends and family. Another initiative by Dr. Susan Love Research Foundation to further research addressing critical questions, and build a better understanding of breast cancer. Together we can help make a difference!

The Challenge

Challenging the
scientific community.

We believe that challenges offer us an unique opportunity to elevate our best self, to push beyond our comfort zone and to achieve personal optimization.

The development of great concepts generate challenges that produce viable solutions for the future, and Army of Women (AOW) is no different. These challenges include the construction of a proper workflow for research proposal submissions and forms to determine participant eligibility, a safe and secure environment to ensure confidentiality and user friendly dashboards for Researchers to track status of their proposals. As well as replacing an outdated system containing confidential records to over 300,000 participants and 2,000 studies, with a fresh new version. This required a diligent team to safely migrate all data to the new system without losing record of any previous activity.

The Solution

Join the army.

blood, sweat & tears
Our team put forth exceptional skill and mastery to ensure proper measures were administered to combat the defined challenges. These measures include well performed and extensive testing, in order to confirm fitness and accuracy before application delivery. 

Solutions such as the integration of the Drupal workflow module, in combination with a series of rules and actions which trigger accordingly. In connection to the utilization of the Drupal webform module, which combines "conditional fields" with the "webform template," to determine participant eligibility. Alongside custom code, to ensure only data from a user's profile and eligibility of past studies is maintained in the system to safeguard confidentiality.

Based on conditional requirements, back-end solutions were also enforced to determine the elements which are displayed to users. These solutions include detailed Drupal Views and Custom Code, which enable the Researcher's, Scientific Advisory Committee, and Foundation users access to tabs containing sortable tables of content on the front-end.
