The Brooks Rehabilitation Clinical Reearch Center began in 1999 as a joint effort with the University of Florida. The Clinical Research Center is committed to conducting quality research projects that will advance the knowledge and science of recovery and wellness for persons requiring rehabilitation.
Our research is primarily focused on stroke recovery, spinal cord injury, brain injury, orthopedic problems and chronic pain. We also seek to study ways for individuals to maintain their health and wellness after injury or with age. We seek to bridge the advances made in medical and scientific research to the application of clinical practice and to improve the quality of life and outcomes for those recovering from disability or illness.
Emphasizing teamwork, the Clinical Research Center collaborates with our own clinicians as well as nationally recognized researchers and academic Institutions to study evidence-based care interventions that lead to improved patient outcomes. Our research collaborations have resulted in numerous publications in peer reviewed journal articles and high quality educational presentations at nationally recognized clinical meetings.
Our research center is staffed with experienced research professionals, licensed clinicians including nurses and therapists, research assistants, clinical coordinators, and a data specialist.
We have the capability to conduct multiple and varied clinical trials to provide Investigator support services such as: study initiation, development of study tools, participant and community based recruitment, project staffing, clinical coordination, data collection, data entry, performing clinical and research procedures including clinical intervention treatment and monitoring, specimen collection and processing including -20 and -80 freezer storage, and secure storage space for recordkeeping and equipment.
The facility includes more than 4,000 square feet of designated research space with ample offices, treatment and exam rooms, human motor performance laboratory, biological laboratory, computers, telephones, copier/fax, secure storage space, and conference rooms for investigative teams and a reception area for clinical trial participants. We are located three blocks south of the Brooks Rehabilitation Hospital. We invite everyone to visit our facility and welcome opportunities to collaborate with others.
The Clinical Research Center conducts clinical trials in a variety of settings that correspond to the design and nature of the projects. Our research is conducted by experienced research professionals and licensed clinical staff. We are able to conduct studies with our designated research center, in the Brooks clinical care setting, and in the Jacksonville Community.
