Discover how UF's range of research initiatives is shaping the future.

Some of the best evidence of the tremendous volume of research being conducted at the University Florida is the number of spinoff companies that are maturing, many with products already on the market or within sight of that goal.

One development that is already changing and even saving lives is a grafting technique created by UF researchers and launched by AxoGen, Inc. that allows surgeons to reconstruct damaged nerves. The process brings great hope to those with peripheral nerve damage, including many critically injured soldiers.

Technology in the pipeline

Gainesville-based Xhale is marketing a system, HyGreen, that ensures health care workers sanitize their hands. Prioria manufactures tiny unmanned aerial vehicles for military operations.

And Grooveshark offers an alternative form of music sharing.

And tomorrow brings the promise of even more products and services that are a direct result of UF research initiatives.
