This project will assess the feasibility of a 12-week physical activity program developed specifically for females exposed to a known occupational carcinogen - shiftwork.
Parkinson's disease results from the loss of dopamine producing brain cells; however, the mechanism that start and continue this loss are still largerly unknkown. Recent research has suggested a protein called tau may contribute to the development and progression of Parksinon's disease.
Significant changes in brain morphology are observed in people with first-episode psychosis. Studies have shown that total brain volume and particular brain structures are decreased in people with psychosis disorders.

Early intervention for those at risk of type 2 diabetes has the potential to prevent or delay the onset of diabetes. Also, the detection of prediabetes is a very important component of chronic disease prevention.
The investigators are investigating the effects of traffic-related diesel exhaust on lung function and the immune system in those at risk for COPD. The individual will be exposed to either filtered air (FA) or carefully controlled levels of diesel exhaust (DE) in our exposure chamber.
The primary purpose of the protocol is to evaluate whether Trientine Hydrochloride, a copper chelator which is an agent that binds with and removes copper, will be effective in minimizing macular edema after cataract surgery in individuals with type 2 diabetes.
We aim to examine the relationship bewteen cognitive function and sleep quality as a function of aging; and to determine whether sleep disruptions differ across individuals with mild cognitivie impairment, depending on stroke-status (i.e., chronic stroke survivors versus non-stroke).
Many older adults lack the skill of efficient wheelchair propulsion despite being the largest cohort of wheelchair users. Inefficient wheelchair propulsion can lead to fatigue and overuse injuries that can result in lost independent mobility.
The aim of this study is to evaluate the efficacy of the candidate Clostridium difficile (C. difficile) vaccine to prevent primary symptomatic C. difficile infection (CDI) in subjects a risk for CDI where there is a substantial unmet medical need.
