THE LAKE NONA CAMPUS
The Lake Nona facility features the Center for Pharmacometrics and Systems Pharmacology, Institute for Therapeutic Innovation, Center for Pharmacogenomics, Institute of Aging, Clinical and Translational Science Institute, and Medication Therapy Management Communication and Care Center.
Innovative Approaches to Research & Patient Care
The UF Academic and Research Center brings together renowned researches, clinicians, teachers and students under the banner of providing effective therapies and improving the health of patients.
This facility is among the first academic centers in the nation to adopt sophisticated mathematical modeling and computer simulations that mimic clinical trials of new drugs. These simulated trials allow researchers to determine if a drug is beneficial and avoid investing in drugs that don’t have the potential to help millions of people.
All of this is keeping with the campus’s mission of getting safe and affordable drugs to the American public while meeting the health needs of the community and the nation.
VA MEDICAL CENTER
The Orlando VA Medical Center provides acute specialty care to Central Florida’s 400,000 veterans, and has been designated by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs as an “Emerging Center of Innovation.”
