Our vision is to use scientific discovery to ensure optimal health through individualized nutrition. To do this, we need your help! Many of our research studies rely on volunteers to help us learn how nutrition science works in differing people.
As a study participant, you may be asked to eat or drink certain nutrients or provide biological samples such as blood or urine. We may record your physical measurements or have you take some cognitive tests. Each study is unique. Being a study participant is voluntary and you can choose to end your participation at any time. As a participant, you are typically paid for your time based on the activities and time commitment required. Read through the opportunities below to learn more.
