What if you were part of the solution?

Participate in research at the University of Florida.

UF Studies

UF researchers conduct many different kinds of studies. Some focus on certain health conditions, and others need healthy volunteers.

UF Studies is a University of Florida initiative designed to connect community members with research participation opportunities and information.

Research at top 10 public institutions like the University of Florida leads to new technologies, treatments and approaches that improve our quality of life and make the world a better place. The study teams who are searching for answers can’t do it alone; they need help from volunteers like you who participate in research.

Research helps us know how best to care for patients, or how to improve care for the next patient. With you on the team, we’ll have the best solutions for people like you. Together, we can ensure that everyone in our community is represented in research.

Before deciding to participate in a research study, take time to learn about clinical research, how it's conducted and your rights as a research participant. Always remember that a clinical research study is research, not treatment.
