The broad theme of research in our laboratory is to understand how physical activity influences growth and development in children and adolescents.
Healthy prepubertal males and females (age 8-10 years), late pubertal males (age 15-17 years), and late pubertal females (age 14-16 years). This study is focused on understanding growth and exercise as it occurs in children without chronic diseases or disabilities, specifically so that in future studies we can examine the effects of disease on exercise and growth in children.
A maximum of three two-hour long visits
There will be no direct benefit to the participants from participation in the study.
Twenty-five dollars ($25.00) per session for a possible total of seventy-five dollars ($75.00).
