Gut Bugs Trial

Keen to share your good health with others?

We are looking for lean, healthy fit men and women for a clinical trial that will examine the use of gut bacteria as a novel treatment for obesity and obesity-related problems like high blood pressure, high sugar or high cholesterol levels.

So, if you are:

  • aged 18 to 32 years
  • fit and lean
  • exercising vigorously at least 4 times per week
  • eating a healthy well-balanced diet
  • have regular bowel habits

We would love to hear from you!

You will get a free comprehensive medical check-up at the Liggins Institute (including a DXA scan to measure muscle and fat mass), when biological samples are collected. If you are eligible to take part, you will also be compensated for your time.  

If you are interested in helping us, please contact us via email or text on:
