UF CTSI launches new website for finding open clinical research studies

Introducing UF StudyConnect The UF CTSI today launched UF StudyConnect (http://studyconnect.ctsi.ufl.edu), a new website where people can search for clinical research studies that are enrolling participants.

The site is maintained and promoted by the UF CTSI in collaboration with the four UF IRBs, UF&Shands and research teams across the university.

The UF CTSI invites you to share the site as a resource, add studies to the site or send your feedback.

We are committed to continuously improving UF StudyConnect as a reliable and comprehensive resource for learning about open clinical research studies led by UF investigators.

How studies get listed on the site

As part of an ongoing project, the UF CTSI has a team of trained individuals collecting data about human research studies approved by the four UF IRBs since 2008. This team identifies studies that may be enrolling participants for inclusion on the site.

In addition, UF research teams can easily request that listings for IRB-approved studies be added, modified or removed from the site at any time.

Additional IRB approval is not required to list studies on the site.

How the listings are created and maintained

The UF CTSI gathers the data required for the listings and provides investigators an opportunity to review their study information before publishing it on the site.

All that’s required of research teams is to notify the UF CTSI when they have an actively enrolling study and/ or when enrollment for a study has ended. The UF CTSI will update the site accordingly.
