Become a Research Participant
University of Florida researchers partner with groups throughout the state and the nation to conduct many different kinds of health research studies, including clinical trials. Studies may involve participants with specific health conditions as well as healthy volunteers.
Many people might consider participating in research but do not know how to find studies that are right for them. At the same time, important studies are sometimes forced to end before they are completed because researchers cannot find enough people to participate. The UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute helps connect people with research opportunities. Explore the resources below to learn more.
