University of Florida and Scripps Research discuss partnership on biomedical research

July 23, 2021

The University of Florida and Scripps Research said they are in talks to integrate the Florida-based branch of Scripps Research with the research arm of UF’s academic health center.

Details of the agreement will be finalized over the next few months and will build on existing research collaborations UF has had with Scripps and the organizations’ complementary strengths, said David R. Nelson, MD, Senior Vice President for Health Affairs at UF and President of UF Health, the university’s academic health center.

The 30-acre Scripps Florida campus in Jupiter houses more than 40 faculty-led laboratories supported by a 500-member team dedicated to understanding an array of illnesses and seeking to generate effective treatments. Scripps Florida has a robust research portfolio, with nearly $50 million in National Institutes of Health funding and over $67 million in total research funding, which includes industry support.
