Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum. Here doing some research for my post-grad thesis. I think this forum will make my life a lot easier and I'm excited to start reading up.

Welcome to ASF from one Matthew to another.
Team Matt is in the house!! I just signed up on here to do some research for my graduate thesis and I'm wishing I would have started looking here a long time ago.

Thank you. Good to be here, lots to absorb.
So I’ve been a member here at ASF since 2013 and I can say that I have been on several other boards in and around the last 10 to 12 years and by far ASF takes the cake. It’s just a bunch of good quality guys that fundamentally care about gaining useful information and sharing that information to others in the hopes of helping someone out. Every board is going to have its problems but luckily for us we have A great group of moderators and staff members that do a lot of work to keep this website up and running.


I am extremely proud of the opportunity this board gave me… Stick around and you’ll find out how great this place is.

Again welcome

JJ

Thanks for reaching out. I'm sure I'll have LOTS of questions and this is exactly the kind of resource I need. I'm just trying to figure out what the proper etiquette is for the forum. I wan't to make sure my questions and responses are allowed and done in the appropriate places. I'm doing research for my graduate thesis paper which takes a deep dive into Anabolic Steroids, medical professionals and how the two can better interact. Anyways, thanks for the warm welcome. I'll probably be pretty active here... at least until my thesis is complete and I'm fully prepared to defend it to for my final interview.

Great man well good luck... let me point you to your first thing you should read. Find the Board Rules Thread. the Moderator Multi has it in his Signature. You could always search for it.

Read the rules of the board and if you follow them you will have an enjoyable time here. Some guys will be more forthcoming with their protocols than others, just as some guys will be more open to answer certain questions than others. Understanding the board rules would be your first major step.

Welcome

Appreciate the advice. Any and all information I obtain during my research is required to be anonymous so no worries there. I'll make sure I understand the laws of the land before I jump out and accidentally step on toes. Honestly, I'm here to help the bodybuilding community in general if I can adequately prove my thesis. :)

Good question. In an attempt to keep it short.
1. Why do Anabolic Steroids users turn to "Underground" Laboratories and how safe are their products?
2. What would happen to illicit Steroid use if a users physician agreed to help manage their use?
3. Striking a balance: Finding an acceptable balance for therapeutic steroid use for improved patient health.

Well you will see by reviews and actual documentation by means of logs what is working and what isn’t.
Some physicians do know and help facilitate or regulate dosages

I like the thesis, best of luck with that.

I've been checking out some of these logs and a few of them are nothing short of amazing! Unfortunately its too subjective for my use. I do have a small budget for lab testing.

I will be using HPLC and LC-MS/MS to find out how often samples are misidentified or mislabelled as well as whether or not they are dosed correctly or contain contaminants and such.

Who is creating the budget? The dept or you? If it’s the dept ask for more of a budget after a few examinations. To get better results you might have to study multiple sponsors.
I’m sure you will find a good way to get the thesis. The Wright brothers had a very small budget in comparison to Langley, yet who was the first to fly
