UCF College of Medicine donors who support research have provided students and faculty with the changing of technologies to begin groundbreaking research into new treatments.

At UCF, we conduct research of global significance in areas like computer science, alternative fuels, early cancer detection, stem cell technology, and planetary sciences.

In the Burnett School of Biomedical Sciences, cancer researcher Dr. Annette Khaled is working on innovative therapies and techniques to hunt down and kill cancer cells that leave the original tumors and travel to other parts of the body.

Research is costly, though, and federal funding for basic research is declining. This makes private support for research initiatives more important than ever — a vital element in the work of UCF’s scientists, innovators and scholars as they pursue exciting lines of inquiry toward discoveries that make the world a better place.
