Research Subject Recruitment
Would you like to be a subject in a nutrition research trial? The following studies are recruiting for subjects:
Study investigating effect of protein and fiber at breakfast on brain activity, appetite and health
Megan McCrory, assistant professor in the Department of Nutrition Science, and her research team are recruiting men and women age 21-45 to participate in a research study. Participants also must be nonsmokers and have a body mass index between 25 and 29.9. (Those interested can check their BMI at www.nhlbi.nih.gov/guidelines/obesity/BMI/bmicalc.htm.)
Study on the effect of dietary protein intake and weight loss on skeletal muscle
Wayne Campbell, professor in the Department of Nutrition Science, is conducting a research study to assess the effect of dietary protein intake and weight loss on skeletal muscle in men and women ages 35 to 65.
Study on the impact of drinking common beverages with breakfast on blood glucose and insulin levels
Participants are being sought to participate in a study that will look at how drinking different common beverages (milk, low-fat milk, nonfat milk, orange juice, coffee and water) with a meal changes blood sugar and insulin levels after eating.
Study on blood pressure and snacking
Men and women ages 18-60 years are needed by the Department of Nutrition Science for a study of blood pressure and snacking.
Almonds and weight management study
Participants are needed by the Department of Nutrition Science to study the role of almonds in weight management.
Men and women age 18-60, overweight but generally in good health, who have no nut allergies and who are interested in participating in this study should contact Jaapna at firstname.lastname@example.org. Participants may earn up to $200 upon completion of the study.
Study on how food form and sweetener relate to hormones
Particpants are needed by the Department of Nutrition Science to study how food form and sweetener relate to hormones.
Study to determine effect of potassium on blood pressure and compare uptake of potassium from supplement, potato or french fries
Healthy men and women are needed for a potassium study in the Department of Nutrition Science. The study involves consuming diets containing potassium supplement, potatoes or french fries for nine phases, each six days long. Researchers will study how potassium is taken up by the body and how potassium affects blood pressure.
Total compensation for completing the entire study is $540, and all meals, snacks and drinks will be provided.
Men and women age 20-60 with a BMI of 25-35, who have normal blood pressure, are not taking blood pressure medication and can attend nine weekend visits to Purdue are eligible to participate.
For more information, contact Claire Macdonald-Clarke at email@example.com or 49-47625 or Berdine Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org or 49-46559.
The principal investigator is Connie Weaver, distinguished professor and head of the Department of Nutrition Science.
