Faculty Research Seminar Series

The Faculty Research Seminar Series is a program designed to connect all members of the college with the research projects being conducted. These presentations occur once per month, and all faculty are invited to present their work. On occasion, post-doctoral research may also be presented. Presentations typically last between 30-40 minutes.

These presentations are recorded and sent out to the entire college for viewing. Afterward, these links are archived only on the intranet. In order to access these presentations, you must log in with your UF credentials.
