About the OneFlorida Cancer Control Alliance: The OneFlorida Cancer Control Alliance is a research alliance formed by the OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium to strengthen statewide infrastructure and reduce health disparities in diseases related to tobacco use. It is funded by a three-year, $1.6 million grant awarded to the University of Florida in 2014 by the Florida Department of Health’s James and Esther King Biomedical Research Program. The OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium brings together experts from the University of Florida, Florida State University and the University of Miami as well as health care and patient stakeholders to form research alliances focused on specific health areas. The OneFlorida Cancer Control Alliance involves the OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium’s partners above as well as Florida A&M University and Edward Waters College. The collaborative development of the OneFlorida Clinical Research Consortium and its infrastructure is being led by the UF Clinical and Translational Science Institute. Over time, the consortium envisions creating a learning network for the state, in which lessons from research and care in diverse settings are systematically captured and translated back into improved health, health care and health policy for Floridians.
