Heading Image  WELCOME TO CENTRAL FLORIDA HEALTH RESEARCH

Welcome

The Central Florida Health Research site has been created to stimulate collaboration and synergistic proposal development between researchers from Florida Hospital (FH) and University of Central Florida (UCF) (and potentially additional partners in the future). This site provides an opportunity for researchers from different organizations to locate others with similar interests and then work together to develop necessary preliminary data, funded by the partnered organizations, that will eventually lead to submission of extramural grant funding.

Building Research Partnerships

Researchers are encouraged to first Log In and complete a user profile. Only researchers from partner organizations of this site will have access to the information shared in the profile. Use the Find a Research Partner feature to locate potential collaborators with similar interests. Another means of identifying research partners is to review current and past research projects. Links have been provided to facilitate browsing or searching of specific key words across research project descriptions.

Submit a Proposal for Funding

The site's Advisory Board will periodically announce a Call for Proposals (CFP) to elicit research projects from collaborating researchers. To quickly locate current CFPs, use the "All Open Calls" menu item on the left and drill down for submission instructions and deadlines for each Call. Please note that you will need to be logged into this site to complete your submission. To identify additional funding opportunities visit UCF's Office of Research & Commercialization.
