After much toil and trouble, we’re finally on our way with participant recruitment 🙂 (happy claps)!! As anyone who has ever conducted studies with human participants knows, this is a MAJOR study milestone. For me, it’s the participant interaction of clinical trials that is often the most fun and rewarding … especially following the endless stream of preparatory paperwork that comes from dealing with grant applications, REB submissions, and protocol development.

As such, I would like to take this opportunity to dote on our baby (err… I mean our study), affectionately dubbed “Project Mint Tea.”

This study is the culmination of a joint effort from the University of Guelph’s departments of plant agriculture and human health and nutritional sciences. As well, it builds on several years’ worth of previous pre-clinical research in both cell culture and animal models. It’s no wonder we’re so excited about these next steps!

If you or anyone else you know might be interested in participating, we would love to hear from you!  For study recruitment information, simply click on the “Mint Tea Study” link on the HNRU website. For more information about the scientific rationale behind the study, check out this featured article on the ‘At Guelph’ website. And as always, if you’d prefer a more personal touch, you’re more than welcome to just cold contact us directly at: or 519-824-4120 ext. 56314.

We can’t wait to hear from you!
