There are an abundance of clinical studies being conducted in Jacksonville, FL at facilities such as the Heekin Institute for Orthopedic Research, Florida Clinical Research Center, Southeast Gynecologic Oncology Associates, Nemours Children’s Clinic, University of Florida Health Science Center, University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute, Baptist Cancer Center, and many more. Lets narrow down this list a bit and focus in on the University of Florida trial facilities and the Nemours Children’s Clinic.

Just like a college campus has many buildings, University of Florida has Clinical Research Facilities throughout Jacksonville. The Center for Clinical Trials Research is an Academic Research Organization that conducts Phase 1 and 2 trials in all therapeutic specialties. They do the trials in a timely, cost-effective, innovative manner.

As an Academic health center, The Health Science Center of Jacksonville participates in cutting-edge research and clinical trials. There is currently a study going on of infants born with herpes simplex virus infection involving the central nervous system. The study is currently in Phase III, to determine whether continuous administration of the drug they are using suppresses recurrent skin lesions in the patients. The study is recruiting babies younger than 28 days old.

The Nemours Children’s Clinic in Jacksonville focuses on evaluating, diagnosing, and treating babies, kids and teens in northeast Florida with disorders related to hormones and growth. Nemours Children’s Clinic has a renowned approach to research. The physicians and scientists involved have a passion for clinical research and extensive experience conducting original studies that have to do with investigating bone and growth disorders along with diabetes, and nutritional disorders in both children and adolescents.

Late Occuring Complications in Childhood Cancer Survivors

Nemours is currently observing a study stating a patient’s genes may affect the risk of developing complications, such as congestive heart failure, heart attack, stroke, and second cancer, years after undergoing cancer treatment.

Nemours has received many grants and publications and collaborate with other clinical research centers to perform trials of new therapies and devices used to treat hormonal problems in children. For patients who need specialized healthcare, tests, or procedures while participating in clinical studies, Nemours has full access with all other sub-specialty clinics and services.

Many of the studies we have covered have to deal with children and adolescents. As you dig deeper into the different Jacksonville clinical studies, you may find a trial that is the right fit for you.
