                                A new vision
                                for a better state

                                Gators see things differently. We measure success not in awards, but in lives saved. We think advancing progress is more important than advancing statistics. And big breakthroughs aren’t cause for a victory lap; they’re just paths to even bigger ones. Every day, we’re striving for a better world through better research.

                                An uncommon commitment to the common good

                                At UF, our research leads us to collaborate across departments, the state, the nation and the world. Together, our focus is on improving lives—not just in the lab or in theory, but in real life. Because we’re not just discovering breakthroughs or developing new products — we’re shaping the minds that shape the future.

                                It’s a process that leads to not only stronger minds, but better brains. For example, our McKnight Brain Institute is one of the nation’s most comprehensive and technologically advanced centers devoted to discovering how the normal brain operates, and how we can repair the brain following injury, disease or aging.

                                Before “win from within.” Before Michael Jordan sponsorships. Before it helped the football team come back to beat LSU. The Gators football coach asked why his players lost so much weight during games. That simple question led to the invention of Gatorade and the creation of a multi-billion dollar sports drink industry.

                                But it also created something much greater — a culture of innovation where questions and connections across disciplines are encouraged. It’s a culture that established UF Innovate | Tech Licensing and more than 200 startups and companies that are bringing millions of dollars in revenue back to Florida, seeding future innovations. Why put our profits back into research? Because as Gators, we know new ideas are what fuel a stronger tomorrow.

                                Michael Sagas feels that youth, women and minorities are under-represented in sports. The general goal of his research has been to provide insights needed by scholars, policy makers and managers to identify the barriers that limit the status, development and advancement of those groups. His role as the university’s Faculty Athletics Representative to the NCAA and SEC provide him a platform to address the issue.

                                While there is currently no HIV vaccine, progress is being made. Thanks to Janet Yamamoto, a professor of retroviral immunology at the College of Veterinary Medicine and UF CARES collaborator, a vaccine is on the horizon. After co-discovering the feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) and developing the first FIV vaccine, she’s taking what she’s learned and applying it to HIV. The discoveries made by researchers like professor Yamamoto could one day be the key to unlocking a human vaccine.
