UF researchers conduct many different kinds of research studies, including clinical trials. Some studies focus on certain health conditions, but others need 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. UF Studies and The UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute helps connect people with research opportunities.

The University of Florida has a long tradition of engaging and working with patients and their families. The UF CTSI Citizen Scientist Program expands on this approach and engages community members who may or may not have specific health conditions.
Ever wonder how scientific discoveries make it to your doctor’s office? Translational science orchestrates each stage of that journey, from the moment of discovery to improvements in health. In Florida, the University of Florida, Florida State University and University of Miami collaborate as part of a national network working together to accelerate discoveries toward better health.
