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.
Meals for Moms
We invite you to join a study to improve our understanding of how mothers make food purchasing decisions at the grocery store. In this study we will give you play money and ask you to “purchase” foods in our laboratory-based grocery store. We will change the price of certain foods throughout the study to see how that affects your decision to put them in your grocery cart.
Sprint to Fitness
We are looking for 18 – 40 year old, non-exercising participants to join our study about motivations to engage in physical activity behavior.
Protein Eating Patterns and Weight Loss
We are looking for women to participate in a 16 week weight loss study to determine the extent to which protein eating patterns contribute to your ability to stay ‘on track’ with your weight loss goals.
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.
Whole Egg Intake and the Mediterranean Diet
We are seeking volunteers to participate in a research study to evaluate the daily intake of whole eggs in the Mediterranean Diet.
Daily protein intake patterns on energy metabolism and the motivation to snack
We are seeking volunteers to participate in a research study to determine if when you eat your protein can change how your body uses food for energy. We will also test if eating a high protein breakfast can change your craving for snack foods.
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.
