Research Subject Recruitment

Would you like to be a subject in a nutrition research trial? The following studies are recruiting for subjects:

Study on effects of dailing timing of protein intake

This study will look at how within-day patterning of protein intake (even vs. skewed) combined with resistance training will influence changes in body composition, skeletal muscle and health during weight loss.

For this 18-week study, participants will come to the Purdue Clinical Research Center for eight testing days, which are before (baseline) and at the end of a 16-week weight loss intervention consisting of a controlled diet and resistance training program. Dietary counseling, gym memberships and personal trainers will be provided. Testing days will include measures of body composition (including muscle size), muscle strength and fitness, and clinical health parameters (i.e., blood pressure).

Participants will receive $1,000 for completing the study.

Men and women age 19 to 50 who are overweight, in general good health, nonsmokers, nonpregnant, and interested in participating in this study should contact Jan Green at or 494-7660 for more information.

The principal investigator is Wayne Campbell, professor in the Department of Nutrition Science.

Study on the taste perception of dietary fat

Participants are needed by the Department of Foods and Nutrition for a study on the taste perception of dietary fat.

The principal investigator for the study is Richard Mattes, Distinguished Professor of Nutrition Science.

Men and women ages 18-64 who are healthy and nonsmokers are eligible. Participants will receive a $15 compensation.
