Colorado State University STOVES study
STOVES Study Volunteering

​Who are we recruiting for the STOVES Study?

We are recruiting healthy adults (between 18 and 35 years) who are not current or past smoker. Volunteers should live in Northern Colorado.

What does the study involve?

Our study takes place at the Powerhouse Campus at CSU. You will be asked to breathe different amounts of smoke generated by cooking stoves for two hours. You will stay at the Powerhouse Energy Campus for the rest of the day for follow-up health measurements and return the next morning for a final measurement. You will have several hours of free time during each study day. You will be asked to complete six study periods over a three month timeframe. Study periods will be planned at least two weeks apart. This means you will be involved with the study for a minimum of 12 weeks. We will provide you with more detailed information about the study after you submit a recruitment form.
