Dr. Kate Hitchcock Joins UFHCC Academic Research Consortium (ARC) network

Dr. Kate HitchcockOn May 10, representatives from the Cancer Center’s Academic Research Consortium (ARC) network sites met in Gainesville for a daylong retreat. The inaugural educational and research event provided practical education on the latest advancements in clinical research, fostered networking and facilitated two-way communication between UF and community oncology practices. It also provided a forum to assess priority studies and inspired ideas for new investigator-initiated studies relevant to the communities these practices serve.
