Variation In Facial Morphology As A Determinant Of Face Covering Performance: FACEFIT


This study examines the role of variations in the dimensions of facial features on the fitted filtering efficiency of face coverings available to the public during the COVID-19 pandemic. Approximately 100 young (18-55 years old) healthy participants will be recruited. Exclusionary criteria include pregnancy and breastfeeding. After informed consent, participants will enter a chamber where they will undergo 3D facial scanning using a dedicated camera system and be trained to don an N95 respirator ...

Engineering Evaluation of a Breast Pump Device


This research involves feasibility testing of design concepts to support device development of an electric breast pump. The purpose is to evaluate a prototype device for feasibility purposes and not health outcomes.

Conditions: Healthy, Breast Pumping

MusculRA: The Effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis on Skeletal Muscle Biomechanics


Persons with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) suffer from increased disability and mortality, in part resulting from skeletal muscle impairments. In this study, our objective is to determine if skeletal muscle biomechanical properties are altered in RA. Up to 15 participants with early RA defined as duration of disease/symptoms of less than 6 months (where "duration" denotes the length of time the patient has had symptoms/disease, not the length of time since RA diagnosis) AND prior to starting biologi ...

Physical Activity, Alzheimer's Disease and Cognition Relative to APOE Genotype


Physical activity and Alzheimer's disease (PAAD-2) is a randomized control trial that will assess the effects of exercise on middle-aged (40-65 years) cognitively normal adults who have a heightened risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD) due to family history (FH+). The investigators will also assess the extent to which this effect is moderated by apolipoprotein epsilon-4 (APOE4) carrier status, and will gather critical new experimental evidence on the use of physical activity to improve cognitive per ...

Evaluation of Endocrine Therapy Effects of Host Immunity in Early Stage Breast Cancer


The purpose of this research study is to learn about the effects that standard of care endocrine therapies have on the immune system's response to cancer by looking at the number and types of immune cells present and how they function in women with early stage estrogen receptor positive (ER+) breast cancer.

Intraoperative OCT Guidance of Intraocular Surgery II


The overall five-year goals of the project are to develop novel technology to provide actionable new information through provision of live volumetric imaging during surgery, improving surgical practice and outcomes. The investigators believe this technology will enable novel ophthalmic and other microsurgeries not possible due to current limitations in surgical visualization.

Mechanisms of Ozone-Induced Alterations in Efferocytosis and Phagocytosis


The purpose of this research study to understand how environmental and genetic factors may be involved in lung function. Healthy Study participants will undergo a 1-day screening that includes a blood draw and breathing testing, return for a two-day series of testing to include blood draw, and brief breathing test before and after an inhaled challenge with either filtered air (FA) or ozone (O3). Participants return the next day for a brief breathing test, a blood draw and a procedure called bron ...

Combined Breast MRI and Biomarker Strategies in Identifying High-risk Breast Cancer Patients


This clinical trial studies normal breast tissue changes combined with breast magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) that may suggest the beginnings of cancer development. Using breast tissue markers in combination with breast imaging such as MRI may help to more accurately assess a woman's risk of developing breast cancer.

Integrated Cancer Repository for Cancer Research


The iCaRe2 is a multi-institutional resource created and maintained by the Fred & Pamela Buffett Cancer Center to collect and manage standardized, multi-dimensional, longitudinal data and biospecimens on consented adult cancer patients, high-risk individuals, and normal controls. The distinct characteristic of the iCaRe2 is its geographical coverage, with a significant percentage of small and rural hospitals and cancer centers. The iCaRe2 advances comprehensive studies of risk factors of cancer ...
