Florida Hospital / Sanford-Burnham Institute Translational Research Institute
Bench-to-bedside research and discovery
Obesity, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease are three of the most significant health issues in the United States. Recognizing time is of the essence, researchers and medical professionals on the Florida Hospital campus are bringing medical discoveries from the laboratory immediately to the community through clinical trials.
With clinical services on the ground level, testing on the second level, and research at the third level, a unique relationship is developed in the application of "bench-to-bedside" research and discovery.
The Translational Research Institute for Metabolism & Diabetes (TRI) houses some of the most technologically advanced clinical and diagnostic equipment in the country, including state-of-the-art calorimetry chambers, a biorepository, 3T MRI scanner, DEXA scanner, and testing rooms.
One of the things I really enjoyed about working with the Flad team was their ability to internalize,
to listen, and to understand the project. To me, that's why the early steps in the project are so critical
and where Flad really shined.

You need a dedicated building to do this kind of research.
It reflects the Florida Hospital philosophy and their mission to find a cure for diabetes.
They expect to unravel the mystery within the next twenty years, and it's entirely possible.
