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 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.
As a national model for community engagement and translational research, HealthStreet data can be utilized for Community Health Needs Assessments, hot-spotting analyses, preliminary data for grants and cohort identification. The registry includes people across the state of Florida.
To navigate the development, cancer center review process, and implementation of CPS research, the UF Health Cancer Center has the availability of a CPS Navigator to assist with cancer-relevant research.
The goal of the Division of Quantitative Sciences at the University of Florida Health Cancer Center is to provide statistical and quantitative leadership and analytic collaborative support to members of the Cancer Center.
