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:
D3-Cr Study: for people ages 70 and older. We will evaluate a new method for measuring the amount of muscle in the body. By participating in this study, you could pave the way for improvements in treatments for older adults.
JAX-ASCENT registry: are you 60 years or older, live in Jacksonville, FL or surrounding areas, and would like to help our scientists find ways to improve the aging and independence of older adults? If you are interested in becoming a research participant into one of our upcoming clinical trials, call us toll free at (866)386-7730 or visit UFJaxagingstudy.com.
LONGEVERON Study: for people ages 70 to 85 years old who have limitations in their physical function and mobility. We are studying the regenerative effects of stem cell therapy by determining whether intervention with bone marrow-derived stem cells improve mobility, physical function and inflammation.
NEPAL Study: for people 60 years or older; this study has the goal of learning more about how musculoskeletal pain in older adults changes the brain and impacts a person’s mobility and function.
SARA-INT Study: for people ages 65 and older who live independently to help us evaluate the effects of a new treatment in sarcopenia, including sarcopenic obesity in the elderly. This is an interventional study where we will evaluate the safety and efficacy of a novel investigational drug.
SPICE Study: for people 65 or older, to help us discover if the dietary supplement curcumin helps maintain or improve cognitive function, physical function and whole-body inflammation.
UPFront Study: for people age 65 or older, this study seeks to understand why some older people develop problems with walking.
