A leading expert in the search for ways to treat aggressive adult and pediatric brain tumors, Duane A. Mitchell, M.D., Ph.D., will direct the University of Florida’s efforts to speed research discoveries to improve health, as well as for UF’s expanded Clinical and Translational Science Award partnership with Florida State University.
Mitchell was recently named director of the UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute, assistant vice president for research and associate dean for translational science and clinical research.
Mitchell has also been confirmed as the principal investigator of a $29 million Clinical and Translational Science Award to the UF CTSI and FSU, funded in July by the National Institutes of Health’s CTSA Program. Sponsored by the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences, this nationwide network of more than 50 CTSA hubs develops, demonstrates, and disseminates advances in translational science. Translational science is the process of turning research discoveries into treatments, approaches, and cures that improve the health of individuals and the public.Learn more about Renowned Brain Tumor Researcher to Lead UF’s Efforts to Move Research Discoveries to Patients.
