Division of Research & Graduate Programs
The College of Medicine (CoM) has a strong interdisciplinary research culture that encompasses the spectrum from basic molecular processes to the study of ourselves and how we interact with communities. It is the home for several interdisciplinary translational research centers and institutes, core facilities that support investigators across the university, and hosts the University of Florida-Florida State University Clinical Translational Science Award.
It has a dynamic research agenda in biomedical sciences for molecular, cellular, developmental biology, behavioral and systems biology and fundamental biochemistry and biophysics. There are robust translational research programs impacting autism, mental health, behavioral sciences and social medicine, geriatrics, family and rural health, among other areas.
