Our goal is to improve the overall physical condition and quality of life of older adults.

The research studies we do are nutrition studies in which we examine the effects of protein meals on the buildup and breakdown of proteins in the body. Importantly, proteins are the building blocks of muscles. Often we also assess body composition and muscle function.

If you are interested in nutrition and research, we would like to invite you to participate in one of our research projects.

For all our studies compensation is provided according to time and effort. For more information, or if you would like to know whether you qualify, please call at 979-422-1789 or email us at research@ctral.org.
