Research & Clinical Trials

A key element of an academic health center is a passion to explore, discover and innovate. UF Health at Jacksonville currently has more than 550 active studies and protocols being conducted by University of Florida faculty in Jacksonville. Clinical trials are research studies that allow advances in medicine, identify new treatments and ensure safe and effective care for patients. These studies afford patients access to novel and cutting-edge clinical programs that are often available only at an academic health center.

Clinical Research Unit

The UF Clinical Research Unit conducts Phase I and II clinical research studies in all areas of medicine. Unlike Phase III and IV clinical trials, which are later stages of testing involving a greater number of participants and medical facilities, Phase I and II trials are investigations that are fresh out of the laboratory.

Institutional Review Board

The IRB's primary mission is to protect the rights and welfare of participants in human research studies (research subjects). The IRB reviews research before it is started, and most research while it is being conducted, to assess that the research meets appropriate ethical, federal, state and local requirements/guidelines.
