Seeking participants for a metabolic research study

Translational Metabolism Research Laboratory

We are seeking participants for a metabolic research study to help us understand how insulin (a hormone your body releases when you eat a meal) can regulate muscle fat metabolism.


The study involves:

  • two visits to the Samaritan Athletic Medicine Center in Corvallis
  • participants must be age 30-55 years
  • not engage in regular exercise activity
  • not have diabetes or cardiovascular disease
  • and not be pregnant.


Participants may receive up to $225 for time committed to the study and information about their health.


The research study – Insulin and Muscle Fat Metabolism– is being conducted by Sean Newsom, Ph.D., and Matt Robinson, Ph.D.


To determine if you are eligible to participate in this study, please complete the following online survey:
