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 ages 60 to 90; this study aims to evaluate the effects of a new investigational drug on age-related muscle loss (sarcopenia) and assess your physical performance while on treatment over a period of 6 months.


PAD Myopathy

For people 60 years or older; this study┬áhas the goal of learning more about how musculoskeletal pain in older adults changes the brain and impacts a person’s mobility and function.


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.



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.
