Genius Foundation Awards $300,000 To UCF Interdisciplinary Health Research
The award, which is the first major gift to UCF’s Academic Health Sciences Center, will support eight interdisciplinary faculty research projects.
Eight interdisciplinary faculty research projects — on health topics including pain management, improving provider-patient communication, and intimate partner violence — have received about $300,000 in grant funding through a new partnership between the UCF Academic Health Sciences Center and the Elizabeth Morse Genius Foundation. The donation is the first major programmatic gift to the AHSC since it was created in 2018.
Winners include faculty from all four AHSC units — the colleges of Health Professions and Sciences, Medicine and Nursing, as well as Student Health Services — with support from other university entities.
