Current Research

UF Radiation OncologyOne of the great benefits of receiving cancer care at an academic health center is that our clinician-scientists participate in cutting-edge research. In addition to multi-institutional clinical trial groups, the Radiation Oncology Department is involved in in-house protocols (sets of instructions for treatment, or treatment plans) that are used at the University of Florida. Some involve only the Radiation Oncology Department; many others represent joint effort by two or more departments. Most of these protocols are considered “standard of care”, but some are investigational.
