Official TitleLaying the Groundwork for Personalized Medicine in Aphasia Therapy: Genetic and Cognitive Predictors of Restorative Treatment ResponsePurpose
This NIH-funded project will investigate patient-specific factors that may influence response to therapy for language impairment after stroke, or aphasia. Results from this work will assist with better estimation of prognosis for stroke survivors with aphasia, which could empower patients and families to make more informed health care decisions about how to pursue the most appropriate rehabilitation services based on their unique characteristics, such as genetics, cognitive skills, and brain structure after stroke.Could this study be right for you?

Official TitleA PHASE 3, DOUBLE-BLIND, RANDOMIZED, PLACEBO-CONTROLLED, PARALLEL-GROUP, 27-WEEK TRIAL TO EVALUATE THE EFFICACY, SAFETY, AND TOLERABILITY OF TWO FIXED DOSES OF TAVAPADON IN EARLY PARKINSON’S DISEASE (TEMPO-1 TRIAL)Purpose
The main purpose of this study is to learn how well tavapadon (the study drug) works as a possible treatment for Parkinson’s disease and how safe the study drug is. The target dose range of tavapadon being studied is 5 to 15 mg once daily.

Official TitleThe influence of receiving real-time visual feedback on breathing during treadmill running to exhaustionPurpose
The purpose of this research is to assess if receiving real-time visual feedback on your breathing pattern during a run has any influence on time to exhaustion.
The feedback will be provided through animations on a screen placed in front of the treadmill that open and close as the chest and abdomen expand and contract. Research has shown that you want the chest and abdomen to expand and contract at the same time to achieve the most efficient breathing possible, meaning you will want the animations to open and close at the same time.
The ultimate objective is to see if this feedback allowed the participant to last longer until reaching their exhaustion point.Could this study be right for you?
- Healthy adults who run 5 to 20 miles per week
- Have NOT been injured while running in the past six months
- Have NOT been medically diagnosed with breathing deficiencies
- must be age 18 or older
Those who are interested in participating will be directed to complete a survey, found at go.osu.edu/RunningAndBreathing, to ensure that they meet the previously mentioned criteria.Age Range18 and up
