Dr. Alan Berger, University of Florida professor of neurology, at the UF Health Neuroscience Institute

The University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville is committed to fostering research by the faculty and residents. This 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. The Office of Research is dedicated to this mission. A Dean's Research Grant is available to residents and fellows.

Every spring, a Resident Research Day is held, with residents and fellows from all disciplines presenting their work. An annual award for resident research is a reflection of the research 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.

The department of neurology at the University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville, in conjunction with the UF Health Neuroscience Institute, is currently leading numerous clinical research trials. Faculty neurologists serve as primary investigators in phase II-IV studies that will someday determine the most accurate outcomes available in neurological disease treatment. Many of the clinical research trials at the UF Health Neuroscience Institute are granted to just a few specialists and hospitals throughout the nation or the world.
