Excellence In Research

Our department is committed to continuous excellence in research. Our research program is an award-winning program in both Clinical Science and Basic Science Research.

Our labs are dedicated to eliminating Genitourinary Cancer as the second most common cause of male cancer death in this country. We are in the process of developing an extensive program through the integration of basic, applied and clinical research. This program brings together distinguished faculty with complementary expertise from multiple campuses, departments, centers, and institutes as well as the North Florida Veterans Health System. This alliance of researchers and clinicians is charged with translating the knowledge gained from basic science discoveries into clinical applications for treatment, as well as for prediction of disease progression and treatment response.
