Research & Clinical Trials

A key element of an academic health center is a passion to explore, discover and innovate. The UF Health Science Center Jacksonville currently has more than 550 active studies and protocols being conducted by UF 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.
