Industrial Research Opportunity - Survey and Educational Phone Application Development for Eczema Awareness

The Research Innovation Office (formerly Catalyst Centre) was recently approached by an Ontario-based research clinic, who is interested in engaging the University of Guelph on a survey and phone application development project to raise awareness and aid in the assessment of current knowledge of eczema-affected and non-affected children (grades 3-8).
The clinic specializes in the development of pharmacological and cosmeceutical products for use in the North American market.  They provide R&D services, such as discovery and product development, pre-clinical and clinical trials, assistance with regulatory approval, as well as marketing. 
They are searching for expertise in child psychology and education for assistance in developing a survey to assess knowledge of eczema and degree of bullying between affected and non-affected individuals.  The knowledge gathered will be used to develop training materials (ie. a phone application) to raise awareness and decrease bullying associated with eczema in primary schoolchildren.  The clinic is also searching for technical assistance with iOS and Android game application development.
