Volunteers needed for physiology research

February 17, 2009

The Human Performance/Clinical Research Laboratory in the Department of Health and Exercise Science at CSU is looking for volunteers to participate in physiology studies.

Participants must be:

  • non smokers
  • not regular exercisers (e.g. exercise less than 3 times per week)
  • aged between 19 and 85 years; and
  • not using prescribed medication (contraception is permitted)

Benefits of participation may include:

  • a supervised program of exercise
  • measurement of maximal oxygen consumption (VO2max)
  • quantification of resting metabolic rate
  • determination of body composition (whole-body X-ray)
  • analysis of blood for concentrations of glucose and insulin 

Financial reimbursement is available.


For further information, please contact the laboratory prior to Friday, April 3, 2009, via e-mail to or telephone (970) 491-3495.
