Research Focus

The Institute’s research vision comprises the emerging research initiatives that include bioinformatics, biomedical engineering systems, nanoscale science, patient-specific information, data-driven technologies and solutions, and translational research. The Institute seeks to establish collaboration and partnerships with major academic and pharmaceutical partners in the Lake Nona region such as University of Florida College of Pharmacy, University of Central Florida College of Medicine, Veteran Hospital, Nemours Hospital, Florida Hospital (AdventHealth), Guidewell Innovation Center of BlueCross BlueShield of Florida, Johnson & Johnson Pharmaceuticals, and Certara.

Institute faculty will conduct research using pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics modelling, computer simulations, and computational modelling using healthcare data from large databanks. The overall objective of this research group is to maintain, update, and develop new products associated with medication risk mitigation and medication risk stratification. The Institute will provide a unique opportunity for highly qualified individuals in pharmacokinetics, simulation and modelling, machine learning, and programming, as well as for candidates seeking non-conventional post-doctoral positions.
