The HCP-D project is enrolling kids ages 5-7
Get a picture of your child's brain! The HCP-D project is enrolling kids (ages 5-7) to discover how different parts of a child's brain are connected and how these connections change as the brain develops.
Breast MRI Study for Benign and Malignant Volunteers
We would like to offer you the opportunity to participate in Dr. Albert Thomas project titled: MR Imaging and Spectroscopy of Breast Cancer and Healthy Human Subjects that is being conducted at UCLA.
Families expecting another child needed for infant development study
UCLA researchers are recruiting families with an infant less than six weeks of age. Infants must not be the firstborn child in their family and have no family history of autism. The study involves non-invasive MRI (during natural sleep), EEG, eye-tracking, and behavioral assessments in order to examine social communication skills in the first year of life. Participation in this study involves visits at 1½, 3, 6, 9, 12, 18, 24 and 36 months. Families will receive valuable feedback on their infant’s developmental progress, as well as $50 compensation for each visit and a picture of their baby's brain.
No-Cost BRCA Genetic Testing
The BFOR study offers no-cost BRCA testing to individuals who are: 25 and older, have least one Ashkenazi Jewish grandparent, and live in LA, Boston, NY, or Philadelphia.
Do you have pain with vaginal intercourse or tampon use?
This is a research study about vestibulodynia, a condition where women feel pain at the opening of the vagina. They feel this pain regularly when there is pressure in the vagina – pressure from using tampons and/or pressure from sexual activity. Through this study, we hope to find out which medications work best to relieve pain from vestibulodynia, and also find out more about what is happening in the body when women have vestibulodyina.
