Current Nutrition Studies
The Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center is always looking for volunteers to participate in community studies. In community studies, volunteers live at home but take their meals at the Center.
Acute Effects of Fats on Satiety and Energy Needs
We invite you to join a study to determine the effect of consuming dietary sources of fat on responses of satiety and energy metabolism.
Veg Up! Motivating Value of Vegetables Study
We invite you to join a study to determine if eating vegetables will increase people’s motivation to eat vegetables.
Do you not currently eat vegetables, but are willing to eat them for science? We are looking for people to participate in a research study about how eating vegetables can affect your liking and motivation to eat them. In this study we will provide you with vegetables to eat for 8 weeks and measure how much you are willing to eat them after 12 and 16 weeks.
Fish For Health
We invite you to join a study to determine if eating fish of differing omega 3 content will decrease inflammation and cardiovascular disease risk markers.
The Motivation to Exercise
We are looking for participants to join our study exploring how motivational factors are connected to exercise behavior.
Fat burning after a meal
We are seeking volunteers to participate in a research study looking at how the addition of a sugary drink with your meal will change the rate in which your stomach empties and how your body uses the energy provided by the meal.
The Breathe Light Study
We are seeking volunteers to participate in a research study looking at how the amount of calories we eat affect the composition of our breath. We invite you to be in a study to develop a novel, non-invasive method that will provide personalized feedback during dietary interventions as a marker for compliance.
Blood Cell Responses to Exercise
We invite you to join a study to determine how platelets (blood cells that form clots) respond when a person performs an initial period of moderate exercise.
