To complete the requirements of training, each fellow must perform an independent clinical research project under the supervision of a University of Florida faculty mentor. Fellows will be expected to formulate a research question, write the protocol, collect the data and then present the information in the form of a publication in a peer reviewed journal or presentation at a national meeting. Every spring, a Research Day is held on campus, with residents and fellows from all disciplines presenting their investigations. The University of Florida College of Medicine – Jacksonville further encourages resident/fellow research through the availability of Dean’s Fund Research Awards.

Fellows may carry out more than one independent project and/or serve as site co-investigator on one or more of the many ongoing clinical trials within the division.

Our fellows also participate in ongoing multicenter clinical trials and imaging core laboratory research activities.

Currently, we are involved in studies utilizing IVUS, physiology (FFR), primary PCI, anticoagulation in acute coronary syndromes and anti-restenotic medications, as well as intramyocardial delivery of gene and stem cell therapy to promote myogenesis and angiogenesis. Our faculty are also pioneers in the utilization and delivery of drug-eluting stents.
