Our Human Performance and Engineering Lab seeks volunteers for two breast cancer related studies. We are studying the side effects of breast cancer treatment on the brain. We are also studying ways to improve symptoms of weakness and fatigue in women affected by breast cancer.
Please speak with our Research Recruitment Specialist for more information.
Effect of Exercise Training on Breast Cancer Related Weakness (flyer)
This study examines the effect of exercise training on breast cancer related symptoms of weakness and fatigue.
- Participants assigned to the exercise training group will also receive 30 training sessions (5 training sessions per week for 6 weeks). The sessions can be completed at your home, work or at the Kessler Foundation.
- To qualify, you must be a right-handed woman between 45 and 75 years old, who has had a breast cancer diagnosis and treatment in the past 10 years, and who is not involved in regular strength exercise.
Understanding Side Effects of Breast Cancer Treatment ("Chemobrain") (flyer)
This study examines the side effects of chemotherapy and hormonal therapy for breast cancer on the brain.
- To qualify, you must be a woman between 20 and 70 years old, who has had or is scheduled to have surgery for breast cancer, and who has had or is scheduled to receive chemotherapy and/or hormone treatment. Healthy volunteers between 20 and 70, who have not had not breast cancer, are also needed for this study.
