Florida Cancer Innovation Fund awards to propel novel UF Health Cancer Center research

Six UF Health Cancer Center researchers have received funding from the Florida Cancer Innovation Fund for research projects that promote cancer innovation, research and lifesaving care for patients in Florida.

The projects range from small-molecule drug discovery for novel cancer therapeutics to community outreach efforts for breast cancer screening.

“These awards reflect the breadth and depth of cancer research expertise at the University of Florida and the opportunity to implement our work to decrease the burden cancer places on the residents of the state of Florida,” said Jonathan D. Licht, M.D., director of the UF Health Cancer Center.
