Subjects Needed!

Current studies seeking participants:

The department of Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise is recruiting participants for a study investigating the effects of resistance training exercise on muscle metabolism/function.  Participants will be provided a certified personal trainer for 12 weeks to guide them through a 3 day/week resistance training program.  Three muscle biopsies will be performed during the 12-week program and participants will be compensated $50 per biopsy (total compensation = $150).

If you are a male, over 60 years of age, sedentary (inactive) and not currently engaging in resistance training, of normal body weight and would like to begin a resistance training program guided by a certified personal trainer at no cost, please complete the survey at the link below and you will be contacted.
