UMMC Studies


Volunteers are needed to participate in the following studies being conducted by Medical Center investigators.

Physical activity study

The Division of Clinical Immunology under the direction of Dr. Krissy Rehm is recruiting volunteers to find out how the immune system is affected by both physical activity levels and stress levels. You must be 18-45 years old and should not have any significant diseases such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes. We are recruiting volunteers of ALL ACTIVITY LEVELS (from very low to very high). Participants will donate blood and saliva, and fill out short questionnaires. Participants will also have their body fat measured and will complete a short walking fitness test. Participants will also wear a step counter for seven days so we can monitor your activity levels. If you are interested and would like more information, please call Dr. Rehm's study team at (601) 815-5374 or email at krehm@umc.edu.
