Innovative workspace equipped with the best and latest equipment to support the work of the Preston A. Wells Jr. Center for Brain Tumor Therapy at UF.
The Adam Michael Rosen Neuro-Oncology Laboratories houses multiple labs led by UF Researchers. Over 100 physicians, researchers, scientists and staff work every day to find groundbreaking treatments for brain tumors.
The laboratory was made possible by a gift from The Harris Rosen Foundation that also led to the launch of the UF Health-led ReMission Alliance Against Brain Tumors in 2019. The state-of-the-art facility is named in memory of Harris Rosen’s son, Adam Michael Rosen, who received care at UF Health and died in November 2018 after a prolonged fight against brain cancer.
Located on the first floor of the Basic Science Building, the new laboratory includes 13,120 square feet of lab and work space, more than three times the space the team previously occupied at UF’s Evelyn F. and William L. McKnight Brain Institute. The lab features four cell culture rooms, 15 isolation stations and 40 workstations. It also houses a clinical isolation room to process brain tumor specimens in an isolated environment and a dedicated room for specialized microscopy and flow cytometry to analyze individual cancer and immune cells.
There are multiple Principal Investigators running labs in the Adam Michael Rosen Neuro-Oncology Laboratories. Their research ranges from work on neuro-oncology, tumor immunology, genetics, artificial intelligence, neuroimaging and bioinformatics.
