It will collect genetic researchers opinions, understandings and experiences studying human genetics and genetic variation. Scientists who are a principal investigator or co-principal investigator n a human genetic or genomic study of a common disease with at least preli...
Unfortunately, current methods of achieving weight control are disappointing. There is also a great deal of public confusion over what constitutes an appropriate diet for weight control; there is a paucity of carefully performed, randomized, controlled clinical treatment trials to evaluate the varying opinions. Mushrooms are not widely appreciated as the nutritious, low calorie, low fat food (and potential meat substitute) that they are. Mushrooms may be a new "diet food," es...
This study will explore what effects, if any, direct current (DC) brain polarization may produce on mental processes, such as attention, reaction time, working memory, speed of information processing and mood or emotional states. In DC brain polarization, a very weak electrical current is applied to the head. This technique has been used for many years on patients and healthy people with no known serious side effects. Studies have shown that DC polarization can temporarily impr...
This study is gathering opinions from surgeons on the usability of our laparoscopic measuring device.
Information about Americans' food choices and opinions helps researchers and law makers to develop policies and programs to promote health. For this reason, it is important to be able to collect good quality information about how people think about food. This project will compare different ways of collecting information about food from adults.
This project seeks to evaluate the effectiveness of a new post-operative pain relief program for women who have undergone uterine artery embolisation (UAE). UAE is performed by an interventional radiologist as a treatment of uterine fibroids (non-cancerous growths of the uterus.) UAE can be associated with a high level of post-procedural pain and it is the purpose of this study to evaluate a new relief regimen for dealing with this acute pain. There will be two treatme...
College athletes will be recruited to complete a voluntary online survey that will take approximately 10 minutes. In this survey, they will answer a series of questions related to the concussion symptoms they have experienced in their recent sports season, their opinions related to concussions and concussion treatment, and demographics.
Twenty-five women will be followed through their breast cancer treatment. The women will be asked to provide their opinions and desires for lifestyle intervention at different times throughout treatment. In addition, basic clinical data will be collected . The primary goal of this pilot study is to investigate the physical and behavioral changes that occur in patients receiving treatment for breast cancer.
The purpose of this study is to compare standard fillings and silver diamine fluoride (SDF) for treatment of cavities in baby teeth. The investigators will compare the effectiveness of stopping the cavity, cost of the treatments and the opinions of the families and the dental providers.
Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS)is a non invasive technique which uses a very weak current to change excitability in targeted regions of the brain. Early studies suggest that it has antidepressant properties. This study will test the safety and efficacy of tDCS as a treatment for depression.

Interferential current is a form of electrotherapy that is obtained by placing two different plates that produce medium frequency waveform current, resulting in a low frequency interferential waveform in deeper tissues. It was shown interferential current electrotherapy is beneficial for reduction of traumatic edema in tissues and pain control. Patients with conservatively managed distal radius fractures were recruited after casts are shed, and were treated with one session(30...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether trans Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is effective in the treatment of auditory hallucinations in schizophrenia.
This study will compare two investigational techniques for measuring how vaginal gels spread and coat the vagina. This study will also explore the experiences and opinions of women using this vaginal gel. We want to understand how the characteristics of a gel, such as a gel's thickness or consistency, affect how the gel spreads and feels in the body. We hope to use the information we learn from this study to develop future vaginal gels that could be combined with medications...
