The investigators will use Brain Power Games, a computer-based learning game for children, as a neurocognitive "stress test" or medical "challenge" test, in order to evaluate brain/behavior functional integrity in HIV-affected children. This dual use of BPG is a key innovative feature. Each of the 5 core BPG games lasts 10 minutes and trains fine motor, monitoring/attention, visual/auditory working memory, spatial navigational learning. In Year 3 we'll add an Executive Functioning (EF) test t…
The main aim of this formative study is to test and iteratively refine a new mobile phone app, which delivers assessments and tailored intervention content. The study will use social media advertisements to recruit a total of 40 youth between the ages of 16-24 years. Those screening positive for past-month binge drinking or marijuana use will be invited to complete a baseline survey, download and use the app for 30 days, and complete a follow-up survey about the app functionality, design and …
The purpose of this study is to see if accupressure can help reduce the severity of fatigue experienced by ovarian cancer patients. Acupressure involves applying mild to moderate physical pressure by fingers, hand or a device to specific points on the skin to try to bring about a change in the body's functioning, in this case relief from chronic fatigue.
Improving Medication Adherence with Telehealthcare Medication Therapy Management to Change Health Outcomes in Adolescents and Young Adults with Asthma (MATCH) is a multi-center, randomized parallel group study targeted to an at-risk population of Adolescents and Young Adults (AYA) with uncontrolled asthma who have poor adherence with prescribed Inhaled corticosteroid (ICS) therapy.

The goal of the Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity Consortium (MoTrPAC) is to assess molecular changes that occur in response to physical activity (PA). To achieve this aim, a mechanistic randomized controlled trial (RCT) is conducted, in which adult study participants are randomized to endurance exercise (EE) training, resistance exercise (RE) training, or no exercise Control for a period of approximately 12 weeks. The overarching hypothesis is that there are discoverable molecular t…

Public health disasters have disproportionate impacts on low income communities, through pathways that add to those of poverty and associated stressors, and act over extended periods. Very young children are highly vulnerable to long-term impacts on development and mental health in the context of parenting challenges following disasters, yet frequently receive the least attention and resources. This study will test the role of universal parenting support in enhancing young children's developm…
Sport-related concussion is a common and serious injury that can affect athletes of all ages in any sport. The purpose of this project is to study the effect of a 12-week manual resistance neck strengthening exercise program on participants' neck size and strength and how their heads and necks move during simulated sport-associated tasks. This study will help determine if greater neck strength may lower an athlete's risk of sport-related concussion. Each healthy male and female soccer athlete…

The primary objective is to evaluate whether an investigational nuclear medicine test (FLT imaging) distinguishes delayed engraftment from graft failure after hematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT, which is when the patient's blood system is depleted and a new healthy blood system infused) and Objectives:Secondary: - Map the cellular pathway to subclinical (before the new cells are present in the blood) engraftment after cord blood and haplo-identical engraftment through FLT imaging, …

This phase 2 trial will evaluate the activity of Panobinostat in combination with Everolimus for children with gliomas harboring H3.1 or H3.3K27M mutation, including newly diagnosed high-grade glioma or DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) after radiation (stratum A) and recurrent/progressive glioma (grade II-IV, including DIPG) (stratum B).
The Prevention of Lower Urinary Symptoms (PLUS) Research Consortium is working to optimize prevention of lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in women and adolescent females across their life spans. The ability to measure bladder health and key risk and protective factors is crucial to the PLUS mission. To describe and measure the spectrum of bladder health in diverse populations, researchers need a valid and reliable instrument. To date, the Consortium's work on design of a bladder health ins…
