WELCOME TO CENTRAL FLORIDA HEALTH RESEARCH
The Central Florida Health Research site has been created to stimulate collaboration and synergistic proposal development
between researchers from Florida Hospital
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
