In the muscle biology lab, Peter worked on a Champ study. This entails taking tissue samples from a participant's legs, analyzing the samples, and comparing them to new samples after the participant has completed a 16-week training protocol. Peter edited the preexisting MATLAB code and ensured that all variables were correctly calculated in the study. 

I think that the Champ study is something that feels very legitimate, and there's a lot of stuff to do.
