Research Participants

Research on human physiology cannot take place without humans so volunteers are always wanted in the lab.

The inclusion and exclusion criteria are unique to each experiment so we invite anyone interested in being a research participant to contact Chris McNeil (chris.mcneil@ubc.ca) or Alex Yacyshyn (afyacyshyn@gmail.com) to see if any of the current studies are suitable for you. For undergraduate students, this is a great way to supplement your classroom learning and see neuromuscular research in action.

Before participating in an experiment, an investigator will explain the procedures involved and you will be given an opportunity to ask questions. If you wish to continue, you will sign a consent form which has been approved by a Research Ethics Board at UBC. Participants are free to ask questions or withdraw from a study at any point in time.
