Default UCSF study on PCOS and diet needs help

Noticed this on my RSS feed from Everyday Paleo. Just passing this notice onto to whoever reads this sub-forum.

Looking for crowd funding for sure, not sure if they need more local volunteers.

A research team at the University of California San Francisco Lynda Frassetto, MD, Umesh Masharani, MD, Heather Huddleston, MD, Michael Cohn, PhD, and Ashley Mason, PhD is getting ready to conduct a study of dietary treatments for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). They will test a paleolithic diet and an American Diabetes Association diet to see if either or both improves insulin resistance and menstrual cycle regularity for women with PCOS. Thing is, these folks need your help: As many of you can imagine, it is difficult for researchers to land funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to do nutrition-related research in the context of disease treatment or management. This study will give them the early data they need to start large, truly definitive studies of the links between diet (including a Paleo diet) and insulin resistance. Please check out their crowd-funding website to learn more about the study, the researchers, and make tax-deductible donations to help this research happen. And, if you are going to AHS, one of the backer rewards is having lunch with the researchers a pretty rare opportunity! Click here to visit the site. Please help them with this study!
