The Emerging Pathogens Institute fuses key disciplines to develop outreach, education, and research capabilities designed to preserve Florida's health and economy, and to prevent or contain new and re-emerging diseases.
The goal of the UF Genetics Institute is to harness the vast array of talent at the University of Florida to make exciting new discoveries, transfer technology to the marketplace and improve quality of life. Across the vast landscape of biology, UF Genetics Institute scientists discover how genes interact and express themselves, and use this knowledge to improve living conditions for all.
The Institute on Aging exists to improve the health, independence and quality of life of older adults by means of interdisciplinary teams in the areas of research, education and health care.
The McKnight Brain Institute of the University of Florida is one of the nation’s most comprehensive and technologically advanced centers devoted to discovering how the normal brain operates, and how we can repair the brain following injury or disease.
Activities and programs at the UF Health Cancer Center are acutely focused on the development of early-stage “translational” research aimed at the rapid advancement of scientific discoveries to clinical trials and resulting in improved patient care. Our goal is to generate tomorrow’s answers for today’s patients.
The mission of the Interdisciplinary Center for Biotechnology Research (ICBR) is to serve as a world-class research support center that provides scientifically knowledgeable, technically superb scientific services to University of Florida faculty, staff, graduate students, and other research partners throughout the state and nation. Founded in 1987, ICBR is dedicated to initiating and supporting the best of front line technology within the ever-changing and wide-ranging scope of the molecular life sciences.
