Volunteers wanted for nutrition research at the Medical Research Council


A team at the Medical Research Council is looking for female volunteers to take part in a study aimed at finding out the effects of carbohydrates on the nation’s health.

The SuB Study is a five- hour investigation into developing indicators of sucrose intake using a sugary drink.

If you are female, aged 25-40, able to spare five hours over two days, and a non-smoker, you can find out more by downloading the document (below), emailing Owen Mugridge (Owen.Mugridge@mrc-hnr.cam.ac.uk) or calling the volunteer hotline on 01223 437611.

You will be paid reasonable travel expenses and an honoraria of £50 on completion of the study.


The Medical Research Council has been at the forefront of scientific discovery to improve human health. Founded in 1913 to tackle tuberculosis, the MRC now invests taxpayers’ money in some of the best medical research in the world across every area of health.
