Volunteers needed for study of appetite

Volunteers are needed to take part in a research project examining the effects of breakfast on appetite-related hormones.

The study will involve attending the human appetite research unit for either two or four mornings.  Appetite-related hormones will be measured using blood plasma, taken by a trained researcher.  We require adults who:

  • are non-smokers
  • are aged 30-55 years
  • have a BMI between 27-38kg/m2
  • do not regularly exercise
You will be compensated for your time (£240).

The study has been given ethical approval by the NHS Ethics Committee (Number 09/H1307/7) and the Institute of Psychological Sciences Ethics Committee (Number 08398-08, approved on 10 December 2008). 

If you would like to take part, or would like more information, please contact Catherine Gibbons (35753).
