UF Launches New State-of-the-Art Neuro-Oncology Lab

Top brain cancer researchers and University of Florida leaders unveiled a new, world-class neuro-oncology laboratory at UF’s Basic Science Building.

The new lab, named the Adam Michael Rosen Neuro-Oncology Laboratory, will provide an innovative workspace and the best and latest equipment to the team of Duane Mitchell, M.D., Ph.D., co-director of UF’s Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy, focused on stimulating immune responses against malignant brain tumor cells.

“As we celebrate this milestone today, I want to extend my gratitude to Harris Rosen and his family members and friends,” UF President Kent Fuchs said. “The progress made in this facility for patients with brain tumors will be because of you and because of your generosity, your compassion and your commitment.”

The laboratory was made possible by a gift from The Harris Rosen Foundation that also led to the launch of the UF Health-led ReMission Alliance Against Brain Tumors in 2019. The state-of-the-art facility is named in memory of Harris Rosen’s son Adam Michael Rosen, who received care at UF Health and died in November 2018 after a prolonged fight against brain cancer.
