Research conducting original research for the prevention, detection and treatment of cancer
One of the great benefits of receiving cancer care at an academic health center like UF Health is unique patient access to the most advanced medical research, treatments and technologies. Our clinician-scientists participate in research that has a direct impact on improved patient outcomes, and allows patients access to the very latest cancer-fighting technologies and drugs.
The mission of the UF Health Cancer Center Clinical Research Office, or CRO, is to help deliver new and promising cancer treatments that improve the lives of our patients at the UF Health Cancer Center.
The objective of our working groups is to provide a platform for investigators to interact, disseminate ideas, create new collaborations and strengthen ongoing interactions, with the goal of increasing submissions of multi-P grant applications.
The UF Health Cancer Center offers many additional resources to meet the needs of its members and scientific community.
The UF Health Cancer Center and external donors offer a number of funding opportunities to support cancer-related research. These funding opportunities are made to foster and develop state-of-the-art cancer research to help in the journey to find a cure.
