Healthy adult volunteers (ages 18-40) needed for heat therapy study

“Mechanisms mediating vascular protection against ischemia-reperfusion injury following heat exposure in humans”

The University of North Texas Health Science Center and the Human Vascular Physiology Laboratory are recruiting up to 25 subjects (male and female) to take part in a study that will determine whether vascular shear stress is the primary mechanism by which passive heat exposure protects against vascular impairment following ischemia-reperfusion injury in young healthy adults.

You must be:
• 18-40 years old; males & females
• Generally healthy
• Currently a non-tobacco/nicotine user (cigarettes, e-cigarettes, chewing tobacco, nicotine patch/gum)

Study Requirements:
• Visit Human Vascular Physiology Laboratory at UNTHSC on 4 separate days; the first will be 1-2 hours, the second, third, and fourth will each be approximately 4-5 hours
• Participation in this study is voluntary, and if you are a student or employee of UNTHSC your participation (or non-participation) in this study will in no way affect your academic standing or employment.

Subjects will be compensated for their time and effort.

If you are interested in participating in this study as a research subject, please contact Amy Moore via email ( or phone (817-735-2088).
