Molecular Transducers of Physical Activity Consortium (MoTrPAC) - Adult
The MoTrPAC research study is the largest effort to date, aimed at understanding how physical activity improves health and prevents disease. The main goal of the MoTrPAC is to gain a better understanding of how the body changes with physical activity. This will help researchers and doctors to prescribe tailored exercise programs in the future.
The purpose of MoTrPAC is to learn about how exercise benefits health.
We know that being physically active is good for our health, but we don’t completely understand how it changes the cells in our bodies. Understanding the cellular benefits of exercise could help scientists develop new treatments and improve health care advice in the future.
The MoTrPAC study will enroll participants who do not currently exercise on a regular basis.
