Research at NFFRE
NFFRE has a full clinical research resource center that provides administrative and regulatory support, research coordination, study recruitment and more for Veterans and their families within the North Florida/South Georgia Veterans Health System.
NFFRE supports clinical research in many ways:
1. Providing a private space where clinical research can be performed. It provides the researcher an area to perform interventions such as blood draws, medication administration and other procedures in such a way that subjects are comfortable and their information is kept confidential.
2. The NFFRE website provides a place to support researchers and educators as well as to pool our resources, this makes it easier for researchers to collaborate among themselves.
3. NFFRE provides a collaborative research community. We do this by encouraging and facilitating frequent meeting between researchers and their teams, which allow for a smoother transfer of information between colleagues.
