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.

Activities and programs are acutely focused on early-stage translational research that applies findings to clinical trials, resulting in improved patient care. Our leadership works with lab-based faculty to develop new ideas and collaborate on innovative cancer treatments and therapies.

The research priorities of the Cancer Center cut across and align with our research programs:
