About Chuck Jacobson

Chuck manages the clinical research database called INFORM. It has over 18,000 patients and 20 years of historical data. INFORM is used for research using large clinical data sets and providing patients who want to be contacted for future research to clinical trials.

Chuck’s team at the Fixel Institute collects, stores, and provides this data to researchers from all over the University of Florida.
