Christopher CogleThe Florida Cancer Plan

Dr. Christopher Cogle is a professor of medicine, as well as a physician-scientist with clinical and research expertise in the myelodysplastic syndromes, acute leukemias, and bone marrow failure syndromes. He uses blood & marrow transplantation as a treatment option for patients who need more than chemotherapy to eradicate disease. Dr. Cogle also runs a stem cell research laboratory where he dissects the mechanisms of bone marrow-derived blood vessels. His research has made significant impact in the fields of cancer and cardiology. Dr. Cogle’s overall goal is to design safer and more effective methods of treating diseases by tapping into the potential of hematopoietic stem and progenitor cells.

Dr. Cogle serves as the elected State Chairperson of the Florida Cancer Control and Research Advisory Council. The Council advises the Florida legislature, Florida Surgeon General, and Florida Governor with the mission of reducing the burden of cancer in Florida.
