Performance Testing Labs?

I know there are some colleges that have labs for tests like VO2 max and the like... but does anyone have more info on the testing/studies? (particularly in the mid-atlantic or northeast US)

I heard UCONN has a Human Performance Lab, but didn't hear much else.

Thanks for any info or advice you have on finding free testing!

My school DeSales University, in PA, has a performance testing lab. I know they're currently looking for subjects to preform underwater body composition testing as well as V02 Max & lactic threshold. Here's a link: http://www.desales.edu/default.aspx?pageid=308 for contacts and more info.
