Participate in Research

UF researchers conduct many different kinds of research studies, including clinical trials. Some studies focus on certain health conditions, but others need healthy volunteers.






citizen scientist program

Research coordinator Damian Alderman demonstrates how to access grant-related materials to Claudia Harris, who participates in the UF CTSI’s citizen scientist program.

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.
