Dr. Rowan Milner, the Hills Professor of Oncology and director for clinical and translational research at the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, has received a 2019 UF Research Foundation professorship.

Sponsored by the university’s Office of Research, the professorships are awarded to tenured faculty members campuswide for distinguished research. The honor includes a $5,000 salary increase for three years, and a one-time $3,000 award for research support.

Milner served for five years as chair of the college’s department of small animal clinical sciences, stepping down from that position in 2018. He took on an administrative role in the college’s research and graduate affairs office that same year. Milner also serves as a medical oncologist with the UF Veterinary Hospitals.

He was a 2013-2014 Southeastern Conference Academic Leadership Development Program Fellow, and was the recipient of a UF Faculty Enhancement Opportunity Award in 2009.

Dually board-certified in veterinary internal medicine and medical oncology, Milner’s research interests include osteosarcoma, melanoma vaccine, stereotactic radiosurgery, targeted radiotherapy and tumor suppressor genes.

Milner received his BVSC, MVM and Ph.D. degrees from the University of Pretoria, Republic of South Africa.
