Contribute to our research and help advance our understanding of human performance.

Are you one of the fittest people you know?

Or were you once a top competitor? If so, researchers at Stanford University are interested in studying what sets you apart. With just a saliva sample, they aim to study the genomes of some of the fittest people in the world. The whole process will take less than 15 minutes of your time and can be done from your home at no expense to you. Visit for more information.

Competing in a summer or winter Olympic sport?

Researchers from our Female Athlete Program are studying relative energy deficiency in sport (RED-S). If you are a female or male able-bodied athlete/para-athlete (recreational to elite), over 15 years old, and competing in a summer or winter Olympic sport, they want to hear from you. You can help them find the best tools to use in early detection of RED-S to optimize athlete health and performance.

Are you a highly trained or elite athlete?

Researchers at the University of Oregon are conducting a study on a CORE sensor that externally monitors body temperature. If you are an endurance athlete between the ages of 18-59 years old and you are interested in participating, contact the laboratory at (541) 357–9782. You may also reach the team at [email protected]. Please leave a message with the best phone number to reach you as well as your availability.

Want to help researchers study human cognitive performance?

The Memory Lab at Stanford University is looking for healthy 18-25 year olds to participate in a study on mechanisms of human cognitive performance. If you have no history of memory loss or neurological illness, normal or corrected-to normal vision, and no color blindness, please consider contacting the team. The study involves a three-hour visit to Stanford to complete a memory test while undergoing a non-invasive eye-tracking procedure. Participants will be compensated $20/hour. For more information, contact Shawn Schwartz at (650) 701-7763, or email at [email protected].
