How It Works

The Love Research Army connects you to researchers committed to solving important breast cancer questions.

Our program builds and nurtures the critical relationship between researchers and our members. To ensure that we work with the highest-caliber researchers and studies, we have a multi-step review process required for all potential studies. All supported studies listed on our site have passed a review by each researcher's Institutional Review Board (IRB), our Love Research Army research team, and scientists and breast cancer advocates on our Scientific Advisory Committee.

Eblasts

We will send periodic emails with information about supported breast cancer research studies that are actively enrolling volunteers and instructions on how to sign up!

What can I learn from the eblasts?

Current Studies

We provide a description of the purpose of each study, an overview of the study's procedures, and the eligibility criteria, so you can decide whether a study is right for you.

 

 

Webinars

We host webinars that provide information about the results of completed studies that were supported by the Love Research Army.

Where can I learn more about past and future webinars?

What type of research will you see?

Many people think that participating in clinical research means they will have to take medications. However, clinical research includes many different types of studies! The Love Research Army supports many types of clinical research, including studies that investigate how factors like behaviors, genetics, or quality of life affect health outcomes.

Cause or Prevention

Studies that investigate the causes of breast cancer or strategies to decrease your likelihood of developing breast cancer.

Behavioral

Studies about your lifestyle, thoughts, physical activity habits, or communication strategies.
 

Survey or Interview

Studies that are conducted through online, telephone, or in-person surveys or interviews.

Genetics or Biomarkers

Studies that look into the roles of genes, genetic alterations, or specific proteins in breast cancer. These often require a saliva kit, cheek swab, or blood sample.
 

Quality of Life

Studies that address the side effects or long-term effects of breast cancer and its treatments.

Clinical Trials

Studies that compare the effects of treatment or preventative regimens. These can test new treatments, medications, or devices.
