Clinical Trial Opportunity


We are recruiting healthy, non-smoking individuals between the ages of 21-44 to participate in a study investigating the relationship between exercise and the immune system. This study aims to understand how exercise changes immune cell numbers within the blood and whether or not these changes can positively impact outcomes if used in a cancer transplant setting. Participants must not have cardiovascular disease, asthma, or be taking medications that affect immune function (i.e. ibuprofen/aspirin, anti-histamines).

This study will require participants to complete cycling exercise trials on two separate occasions. Upon completion of the study, participants will receive compensation of $50.
