Penn State SELF - Student Engagement, Learning and Flourishing
Substance misuse is a leading national problem, with young adults at high risk. We aim to develop a university resource that elucidates biobehavioral underpinnings of problematic student substance use at University Park campus. This initiative would inform services needed, provide engaged learning opportunities, connect with faculty, and catalyze high-impact, interdisciplinary research. In addition to this primary rationale, this study will allow us to capture detailed information about other critical student experiences such as food and housing insecurity, experiences of discrimination, and daily health practices to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. Participants will be asked to take a baseline survey followed by a 21- daily diary protocol (brief 5 minute survey each day for 21 days.

Threat of infection, social decision-making, and the autonomic nervous system
The purpose of the study is to test how social decisions are affected by possible risk of infection. We aim to examine how choices in a risky social decision-making situation can influenced by viewing images of infection threat (e.g., person with runny nose) vs. images of neutral scenes or other threatening scenes.
There will be one 90-minute in-person visit. Participants will be asked to have electrodes placed on their skin to record their physiological signals, answer questionnaires, and complete a decision-making task on the computer while looking at different images.

SARS Cov-2 Nasal Pharyngeal and Oral Pharyngeal Wash (SNOW) Trial SARS Cov-2 Nasal Pharyngeal and Oral Pharyngeal Wash (SNOW) Trial
Adults recently diagnosed with SARS-CoV-2 infection who use a 4-day combined intervention of nasal washes with 1% baby shampoo solution and oral gargles with Listerine Antiseptic® will have a reduced SARS-CoV-2 viral load compared to those using nasal and oral washes with normal saline. This combined intervention should be acceptable, tolerable and safe in this population. To test this, we are conducting a trial comparing the efficacy of a number of washes in reducing the oral and nasal SARS-CoV-2 viral load amongst adults.
At their home, participants will perform three nasal and oral rinses per day for 4 days and self-swab the nose and mouth before and after each morning rinse to collect specimens under the guidance of a zoom visit. On the morning of the 5th day participants will also self swab the nose and mouth for a final collection specimen. Participants will answer questions on an app and online platform.
