Undergraduate Research
Practical research experience is the gateway to rewarding careers in science (e.g. academia, industry, medicine). Individuals motivated to strengthen their scientific thinking and techniques are welcome to inquire for opportunities. We routinely take in undergraduate students, several have been awarded competitive UF scholarships (Emerging Scholars, University Scholars) and have contributed to high impact publications. A majority of our undergraduate alumni have proceeded to their desired graduate, medical, veterinary, or dental programs.
