Closed Projects

Since October 2008, we have supported more than 120 studies, connecting over 102,000 volunteers with innovative research around the world. These research projects have studied everything from our microbiota to novel breast cancer genes. We have made a point to partner with researchers who are asking important questions that may help eradicate breast cancer.

While these research studies are always different, there is one common factor: our dedicated Army of Women members. With their help, the following supported studies completed enrollment:

This study at Stanford University is investigating the brain function problems associated with breast cancer and its treatment. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 180 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on April 16, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment on May 4, 2009, after the Army of Women provided them with 1,341 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.

This study at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences/National Institutes of Health is investigating how the environment and genes affect a women’s risk of developing breast cancer. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 5,000 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on October 28, 2008. The researchers were able to close enrollment on April 30, 2009, after the Army of Women helped them reach their enrollment goal.

This study at the University of California, Los Angeles, is investigating whether exercise and dietary interventions designed to reduce body weight affect body composition, hormones, and biomarkers in healthy postmenopausal women. The researchers were looking to enroll at least 20 volunteers. The Call to Action for this study was sent to Army of Women members on January 7, 2009. The researchers were able to close enrollment just two days later on January 9, 2009, after the Army of Women provided them with 125 women who were interested in enrolling in the study.
