UF gets almost $15 million in federal funds to build research complex to help older adults
Date:1/19/2010

opment at UF and around the region.

"Thanks to Dr. Pahor and his team, we now will have a centerpiece around which we can potentially develop more broadly an academic home for clinical and translational science at UF," said David Guzick, M.D., Ph.D., senior vice president for health affairs and president of the UF&Shands Health System.

Bringing researchers from varied fields such as genetics and biostatistics under the same roof will facilitate the kinds of spontaneous and informal interaction that often lead to meaningful multidisciplinary collaborations. The building also will allow clinical investigators better supervision of field operations.

Awarded through a highly competitive peer-review process, the construction grant will be administered by the National Center for Research Resources, the same agency that last year awarded UF a Clinical and Translational Science Award.

Funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the project will create or retain an estimated 376 jobs, three quarters of which will be construction-related. The others include 30 faculty positions as well as graduate assistants and support and administrative staff.

The new grant comes on the heels of a recent $64 million NIH research award to the UF Institute on Aging to study whether physical activity can help prevent mobility disability and other morbidities in older adults.

Together the institute's researchers have more than 90 active NIH and other grants in basic, clinical and translational science totaling more than $200 million, and almost 150 pending grant proposals that would garner close to $200 million if funded. The new building helps to pull all those scientific efforts together and improve the possibility for even greater impact of the Institute on Aging.

"The Institute on Aging initiative at the University of Florida is very important to the state and the nation," said Win Phillips, D.Sc., UF's vice
