10K Runners Wanted For Study

Edinburgh Napier University logo

An Edinburgh Napier University student is looking for experienced male 10k runners to participate in a research study that aims to examine the effect of aerobic exercise on immune system response at differing times of the day. The trial will consist of two 10k time-trials, Vo2 max (measure of aerobic capacity), lung function assessment and real-time core temperature assessment.

Research has demonstrated that high intensity exercise influences immune response, however to date there is limited information assessing exercise at different time-points. The result of this study may lead to a greater understanding of the effect of exercise on the immune system.

Those interested in taking part should contact Peter Tormey at p.tormey@napier.ac.uk.
