ECDOI is currently conducting a study of the effect on statin on skeletal muscle mitochondrial function, cardiorespiratory fitness, and metabolism in humans. If you are between the ages of 35 -60, do not exercise, are not on cholesterol lowering drugs and are overweight or obese you may qualify to participate. If you are interested you can

The Human Performance Lab is currently conducting a study to compare the health benefits of moderate and high intensity exercise training on diabetes risk factors. If you are between the ages of 35-65, African American, not currently exercising, and do not have diabetes you may qualify to participate. If you are interested you can
fill out a web screen or call 252-737-4376.
ECDOI is currently conducting research to study the metabolism of healthy human white blood cells. Results from healthy cells are needed to compare with the metabolism of leukemia cells in order to advance cancer research. If you are over the age of 18, a non-smoker and not taking any medications, you may qualify to participate. If you are interested, please call 252-737-1600.
The purpose of this research study is to study the genes that control the vessels and tissues of the lower limbs. We are hoping to use this information to help us understand the how people develop diseased arteries with peripheral arterial disease (PAD), as well as how the tissue surrounding these arteries contributes to the disease process. If you are over the age of 50, with no history of diabetes or PAD you may qualify for this study. If you are interested, please call 252-737-1600.
There are no previous research studies at this time.
