What Can You Learn From Our Eblasts?

After registering as an Army of Women member, you will receive periodic emails with information about breast cancer research studies that are recruiting volunteers. Every study is evaluated by our team and an external Scientific Advisory Committee for scientific merit, study design, and fit before we notify our members.

 

 

Purpose of this study
We believe it is important to help our members understand the background behind our studies. Knowing the rationale for each study helps our members connect with breast cancer research on a new level.

This section offers a short overview of the purpose of each study and key details to help you understand the type of study being conducted.

Recruiting for
This section explains who can sign up for a study. Each study’s criteria are different, so if you do not fit one study, the next one may be perfect for you! These criteria serve two important functions -- not only do researchers want to ensure they have the right group for the questions they want to answer, but they also want to ensure they take every measure to protect vulnerable groups. If there are concerns that study activities are not suitable for a certain group, this group will not be included.
