Research Profile

Christopher R. Cogle, M.D. is a physician and scientist with research focus on cancer and health policy. In his early career Dr. Cogle discovered that blood stem cells make blood vessels and used that biology to invent new therapeutics and diagnostics for people with cancer and heart disease. In his mid career, as a Leukemia & Lymphoma Society Scholar in Clinical Research, he began translating research discoveries into investigator-initiated clinical trials. Dr. Cogle has also made major discoveries in cancer epidemiology and was elected to lead Florida’s cancer prevention and control efforts at the state level, producing the Florida Cancer Plan, leading statewide campaigns for improved cancer prevention and control, and advising the Florida Legislature, Florida Secretary of Health, and Florida Governor on evidence-based strategies to reduce the state’s cancer burden. In 2020, Dr. Cogle was selected by the National Academy of Medicine as an Emerging Leader in Health and Medicine Scholar. As a Scholar he works to increase access to high quality health care by studying and improving health policies of government entities and health systems.
