Genetics Institute (UFGI)

The primary research mission of the UFGI is to promote and enhance interactive genetics research across the UF campus. The UFGI is built on a foundation of outstanding genetics research programs already in existence across UF in such diverse fields as medicine, agriculture, chemistry and engineering.


McKnight Brain Institute

The MBI is a nexus for neuroscience at UF. Across campus, 300+ faculty members work in multidisciplinary teams to better understand how the brain works and how various diseases alter brain function. Ultimately these researchers and physician-scientists hope to help broaden the understanding of many neurological and psychiatric disorders and change them from untreatable to treatable, incurable to curable and inevitable to preventable.
