The UF Department of Aging’s Clinical Research Division has a number of current and upcoming aging studies available for volunteers.

Gift card compensation is provided for some of the studies, and gas card reimbursement or van transportation for distance travel may be available.

We are currently enrolling participants in the following studies:


Mind in Motion (70+)

For adults 70 or older: This study seeks to understand how aging of the brain influences walking ability. We will conduct tests of walking, balance, memory, brain recordings (MRI), and more.



For people age 65 or older without an active hypertension medication treatment.

Pepper Registry

The purpose of this research study is to create a registry of volunteers who are interested in taking part in aging-related research. By signing up you may receive newsletters, postcards and other mail informing you of aging-related research at the University of Florida.



A multi-center study for adults 75 years or older to learn if taking a statin could help older adults live well for longer by preventing dementia, disability, or heart disease. A statin is a commonly used drug to lower cholesterol.


Circulating Factors

For adults between 75 and 95 years old. This study seeks to identify novel circulating factors affecting skeletal muscle mass and function in advanced age.
