Reimbursement: Most Pepper Center studies pay for transportation and/or participation.
Senior volunteers are invited to participate in research on age-related muscle function. Pepper Center studies primarily investigate how exercise, medications, hormones and nutrition affect muscle size and strength.
By becoming a Pepper Center volunteer, you will have a chance to learn more about your own health and participate in studies helping Americans retain, improve, and recover basic muscle function as well as recover from illness as they age.
UTMB researchers with a special interest in physical function, strength and recovery from illness are presently recruiting subjects for their studies. From time to time, a UTMB investigator may send you information about an opportunity to participate in a study. You are never under any obligation to participate in a study.
If you are interested in becoming a Pepper Center Volunteer, please call us at 800-298-7015 or email us. We will determine if you are eligible to participate in our current studies. Your information will then be put on a confidential list of Pepper Center Volunteers. Remember, this does not obligate you in any way to participate.
Please call with any questions regarding Pepper Center Studies or participating in the exciting research currently underway at UTMB.
