Substrate Metabolism Laboratory
The Substrate Metabolism Laboratory conducts research centered around exercise and diet, attempting to discover how these factors affect the risk and prevalence of metabolic diseases such as Type 2 diabetes. The health benefits for exercising are well known, but what is still unclear are the actual mechanisms of exercise and diet that produce healthier lives. By studying and understanding these mechanisms, we will be able to target specific training programs or medications designed to reduce the risk of disease.
We currently are recruiting subjects for the following research study projects.
- Weight Loss Research Study
- Acute Exercise Research Study
- Fat Metabolism Research Study
- Weight Management Research Study
If interested in participating in any of the above studies, please complete the General Pre-screening Questionnaire at myumi.ch/51VM2 to determine your eligibility to continue screening for our studies. If eligible, our study coordinator will contact you via email to set up a screening appointment.
