As a Clinical Trials Office, PoRCH aims to serve as a centralized resource for investigators, study staff and departments involved in clinical trials research. It also serves as a centralized point of contact for sponsors seeking to conduct pediatric clinical trials at the University of Florida.

A clinical trial is “a research study in which one or more human subjects are prospectively assigned to one or more interventions (which may include placebo or other control) to evaluate the effects of those interventions on health-related biomedical or behavioral outcomes.“
