UF Health Proton Therapy Institute
During our first 10 years, the UF Health Proton Therapy Institute staff has grown to 165 and has brought hope of a cancer-free future to 6,400 patients. When we opened our doors in August 2006, proton therapy was a new cancer treatment to the Southeast United States. With the availability of proton therapy, Florida residents – and cancer patients throughout North America and from 30 other countries – now enjoy access to one of the most advanced non-invasive cancer treatment tools available.
Located in Jacksonville, Florida, our proton therapy center is staffed, situated and structured as a major clinical research facility. We serve as a center for multidisciplinary research with 133 published articles involving all interests that touch cancer and its treatment.
The UF Health Proton Therapy Institute's interest extends into other clinical and scientific disciplines, including engineering, computer science, medical and legal ethics, social science, health economics, materials science and space technology.
