The Love Research Army connects you to researchers committed to solving important breast cancer questions.
Since its inception, the goal of the Love Research Army has been to help researchers transition from experiments on mice and rats to people of every ethnicity, race, and gender—with and without breast cancer—across the world.
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.
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!
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.
We host a variety of webinars on topics such as advances within breast cancer research and the results of completed studies that were supported by the Love Research Army.
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. As a member, you will receive emails outlining these six types of studies.
Cause or PreventionStudies that investigate the causes of breast cancer or strategies to decrease your likelihood of developing breast cancer.
BehavioralStudies about your lifestyle, thoughts, physical activity habits, or communication strategies.
Survey or InterviewStudies that are conducted through online, telephone, or in-person surveys or interviews.
Genetics or BiomarkersStudies 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 LifeStudies that address the side effects or long-term effects of breast cancer and its treatments.
Clinical TrialsStudies that compare the effects of treatment or preventative regimens. These can test new treatments, medications, or devices.
