Join us to celebrate the research of MD-PhD students, and CTSI trainees, scholars and pilot awardees representing multiple departments and colleges across the University of Florida.
Dr. Nelson is an associate professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the UF College of Medicine. He is also the director of the Nelson Lab which seeks to medical, scientific and technology skill-sets to discover new approaches to combat infectious disease outbreaks.
The Harrell Medical Education Building serves as a national model, providing a dynamic environment for training UF medical students and physician assistant students to practice safe, effective and compassionate clinical care.

The MD-PhD Training Program is at the interface of discovery and development where we are transcending individual disciplines for the “team science” paradigm. Here, enthusiastic and interactive researchers, creative minds, and cutting-edge technology work together to apply and advance science. The goal of the MD-PhD Training Program is to enable scholars to obtain the best training in their intended research areas while working closely with an outstanding faculty.
The CTSI TL1 Training Program provides predoctoral trainees with the skills required to develop a career in multidisciplinary clinical and translational research. TL1 Teams are comprised of two or more PhD students from different degree programs in different colleges. Teams collaborate to develop new team-specific aims that expand the scope of their individual dissertation projects based on a common research interest, e.g., a human disease being investigated at different levels (molecular to population), with different experimental approaches or data analysis methods, and/or at different parts of the T0-T4 continuum.
The KL2 Program is a multidisciplinary program for junior faculty, that provides two years of financial support and research training to develop the skills necessary to build a well-funded, collaborative career in clinical/ translational research.
