LSU Pennington Biomedical Research Center is looking for pregnant women to participate in an ongoing study.
The Mito Moms research study will assess how different levels of physical activity during pregnancy may change your muscle metabolism and how it may be translated to your baby.
Qualified women who are picked for the study will complete 3 study visits during their pregnancy at the Pennington Biomedical outpatient clinic. The visits will happen between 21 and 36 weeks of your pregnancy. A Pennington Biomedical team member will also visit the hospital or birth center at the time of delivery to collect a sample of the placenta and umbilical cord.
Participation in this research study will last approximately 5 months.
You can calculate your BMI here.
Participants will receive up to $500 upon completion of the study.
If you are interested in volunteering for the Mito Moms study, get started by filling out the online screening. You can also call 225-326-0546 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to see if you qualify for this research study.
