Research

The department of pathology and laboratory medicine at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville is committed to fostering research by the faculty and residents. Our institution has been engaged in clinically applied research for many years and is enriched by the presence of faculty who have demonstrated excellence in performing research and in training new investigators.

A Dean's Fund Research Award is available to residents and fellows. Every spring Research Day is held, with residents and fellows from all disciplines presenting their work. Annual resident participation in Research Day is a reflection of the scholarly activity in our training programs. Well-designed studies conducted in collaboration with the faculty have resulted in residents and fellows presenting their research at regional, national and international meetings. Funding is made available for these presentations and residents are strongly encouraged to publish the results of their scientific projects.
