  • Ongoing Research and Clinical Trials

    Stress Hormone Study in Adults, ages 18-64

    The Division of Clinical Immunology at the University of Mississippi Medical Center and Principal Investigator Dr. Lianbin Xiang are recruiting volunteers to determine if high levels of psychological stress can affect the immune system by measuring a stress hormone (cortisol) in the hair of Asian, Caucasian and Hispanic adults ages 18-64. If you have no known diseases or you have clinically controlled disease, you may be qualified for this study. Volunteers will donate hair and saliva and will answer questionnaires. Financial compensation will be provided. For more information, please call our study team at (601) 815-5374.

    Allergy study

    The University of Mississippi Medical Center's Clinical Immunology and Allergy department is seeking individuals between ages 18 and 45 with allergies, who do not have significant heart and kidney diseases, cancer, neuropathies, eczema, spinal injuries or autoimmune disease to participate in a research study. Participants will have limited allergy testing at no cost. Financial compensation is available. For more information, please call the Clinical Immunology and Allergy team at (601) 815-5374 or e-mail ddmontgomery@umc.edu. Gailen D. Marshall Jr., MD, PhD, is the Principal Investigator.

    Physical activity

    The Division of Clinical Immunology under the direction of Dr. Krissy Rehm is recruiting volunteers to find out how the immune system is affected by both physical activity levels and stress levels. You must be 18-45 years old and should not have any significant diseases such as heart disease, cancer or diabetes. We are recruiting volunteers of ALL ACTIVITY LEVELS (from very low to very high). Participants will donate blood and saliva, and fill out short questionnaires. Participants will also have their body fat measured and will complete a short walking fitness test. Participants will also wear a step counter for seven days so we can monitor your activity levels. If you are interested and would like more information, please call Dr. Rehm’s study team at (601) 815-5374 or e-mail krehm@umc.edu.
