Description:  

At the University of Central Florida, biomedical researchers are advancing our understanding of human disease and developing innovative methods of treatment. Many are engaged in research on the world’s most prevalent and serious health problems, including cancer and cardiovascular, infectious and neurodegenerative diseases. They are making discoveries taking cures from the bench to the bedside, helping the citizens of Florida, the nations and world.

Research includes investigating ways to limit metastasis in prostate and breast cancer and new diagnostic screens that detect cancer. Some of the current research in cardiovascular diseases focuses on both the attainment of fundamental knowledge about how the cardiovascular system functions, as well as its practical application to treat cardiovascular disease. Other research objectives include understanding of innate ability of humans to resist bacterial and viral infection, developing new diagnostic methods and identifying of targets for novel therapeutic agents to treat such infectious diseases.
