Sealy Center on Aging

Senior volunteers (age 60 and over) are invited to participate in research on age-related muscle function. Pepper Center studies primarily investigate how exercise, drugs, hormones and nutrition affect muscle mass 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 or improve basic muscle function as they age.
UTMB researchers with a special interest in muscle function and strength 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.
Reimbursement: Most Pepper Center studies pay for transportation and/or participation.
If you are interested in becoming a Pepper Center Volunteer, please give us a call at 800-298-7015 or email us. We will determine if you are eligible to participate in 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 give us a call if you have any questions regarding the Pepper Center Studies or participating in the exciting research currently underway at UTMB.
