WANTED: Fit males to help heart research project

Dr Alice Mezincescu has started coming to our events (when on call duties allow) in order to brush up her navigation skills for an Ultra race later this year she says, but I reckon that secretly she’s also been gauging the orienteering fraternity for suitable subjects to help her research.

She is a British Heart Foundation Research Fellow working for the Medical Sciences Department of Aberdeen University and currently trying to recruit fit males who exercise on regular basis for one of their studies that aims to elucidate how we can reduce cardiovascular risk improve insulin sensitivity with the aid of exercise.

Jon Musgrave has already been through the guinea pig process so if you want to know more catch him at Dess or contact the Cardiology Research Facility on 01224 559573 or email alice.mezincescu@abdn.ac.uk.
