Amidst all of the challenges surrounding COVID-19, we are excited to be supporting two research studies: Does whey protein have what it takes to improve collagen synthesis? by Dr. Dana Lis and Optimization of Omega-3 Index Levels in Athletes and Service Members: Personalized Omega-3 dosage and molecular genetic approaches by Dr. Melissa Rittenhouse. Due to the current challenges around performing research and managing institutional policy changes, we will pause our Research Award until data collection in one of our two studies is complete.
