Restless Leg Syndrome, Breast Cancer Prevention, Radiation Treatment Hope for Tomorrow

April 3rd, 2010 by Sharon O'Hara

Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), Breast Cancer Prevention and Radiation Treatment effectiveness or, What do three students from the University of Alabama have in common?

Why are they so important?

For those with RLS or Breast Cancer and those who have experienced Radiation Treatment, it is an easy answer.

The more research leading to discoveries, treatment and cures, the fewer future patients.

Atbin Doroodchi, 20 is a member of the Science and Technology Honors Program and an undergraduate researcher in the lab of Yuqing Li, Ph.D., investigating a gene’s relationship to my particular interest, restless leg syndrome.

Shweta Naran Patel is 21 majoring in molecular biology. She is a member of the University Honors Program and undergraduate researcher for Trygve Tollefsbol, Ph.D studying the natural compound role in breast caner prevention.

Tamara Michelle Burleson, 20 is majoring in Chemistry and a Supplemental Instruction Leader. She is investigating the role between certain proteins and radiation treatment effectiveness in the lab of Christopher Willey, M.D..

The Barry M. Goldwater Scholarship and Excellence in Education Foundation have named Doroodchi, Patel and Burleson 2010 Goldwater Scholars.

The faculties of colleges and universities select the Goldwater Scholars based on academic merit and the one and two-year scholarships cover school expense up to $7,500 a year.

Heartfelt congratulations to all!

    However, it is possible to reduce the chances of developing breast cancer by knowing about what puts you at breast cancer risk. For this reason, it is important to know what factors can increase or decrease breast cancer risk and how much those factors change your risk.
