Research participants needed for cardiovascular study

Story by Jennifer Richards

Subjects are needed for a cardiovascular research study at CSU studying the effects of aging on muscle blood flow control in humans.

You may be eligible if you are:

• 18-35 or 55-90 years of age

• Healthy and not taking any blood pressure or cholesterol medications

• Sedentary or moderately physically active

Benefits include:
– Free body composition/bone density assessment
– Monetary compensation for select studies
– Treadmill test for subjects > 55 years of age

The Human Cardiovascular Physiology Laboratory in CSU’s Department of Health and Exercise Science is conducing the study, titled “Regional blood flow control and vascular function: effects of aging and regular physical activity.” Participation involves a one-hour screening visit and a single study day visit (five hours).

Those interested in participating can email chhs-hes_cardiovascular_lab@Mail.ColoState.EDU, visit the lab website  or call (970) 491-6702.

The principal investigator is Professor Frank Dinenno.
