Dr. Friedman is a UF Health neurosurgeon and co-director of the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy. His mom's battle with terminal brain cancer 15 years ago shaped his vision for the future of brain tumor therapy.
Generous gifts from the Lillian S. Wells Foundation, Inc., a Fort Lauderdale-based group that supports medical research, helped Dr. Friedman's vision come to reality. Today, the Preston A. Wells Center is home to renowned University of Florida faculty, progressive clinical trials and unprecedented patient outcomes. Now, the center is a destination for novel, new treatments for people from all over the country.
