Research Labs

Committed to a greater understanding of radiation therapy and its successful use in the fight against cancerCommitted to a greater understanding of radiation therapy and its successful use in the fight against cancer, UF Radiation Oncology Research Lab faculty members and students collaborate with colleagues around the university, related institutions, and the world to advance their unique areas of research.

The Okunieff Lab is dedicated to the study of the normal tissue effects of radiation and the prevention and mitigation of radiotoxicity, with a particular emphasis on growth factors and their analogs. A major focus of the Siemann Laboratory is the development and assessment of novel anticancer treatment strategies, with approaches targeting two critical aspects of cancer growth: The initiation of a tumor blood vessel network, and the secondary spread of cancer cells. The O’Dell Lab is working to discover and apply novel image analysis and image-based computational techniques for improved detection, follow-up, and treatment of cancer. Learn more:
