Working Group Meetings

The objective of these groups is to provide a platform for investigators to interact, disseminate ideas, create new collaborations and strengthen ongoing interactions, with the goal of increasing submissions of multi-P grant applications. Our working groups include research program members as well as postdoctoral fellows, graduate students and research faculty from across UF. Discover all the UF Health Cancer Center Working Groups here and all the upcoming Working Group meetings here.
