Unique Access to Pioneering Treatment
We conduct hundreds of clinical trials each year designed to improve healthcare and find cures for a wide range of diseases. Clinical trials give our patients access to brand new treatments that are not widely available. Participation is also a great way to honor a loved one who has battled a disease by helping scientists better understand how to treat it.
How do I find out if I qualify for a study?
Florida Hospital Research Institute (FHRI) has over 500 research studies at any given time being conducted by 17 Research Areas.
Every research study has guidelines that determine whether a person can or cannot be in the study. To qualify for a research study, a person must meet “Eligibility Criteria.” This is a list of items that the person must meet to be in the study. For example,
Research studies have eligibility criteria to ensure the study will meet its scientific objectives and to make sure that people can safely participate in the study.
