Description/Abstract

The InvestiGators is an undergraduate research honors society conducting translational research at the University of Florida. In contrast to undergraduates being helpers for graduate students, our philosophy is that undergraduates are young colleagues of the professor. The students represent many different majors and are grouped into three teams. The Carnitine Team studies carnitine metabolism in different populations using piglets as a model. The Gator Team investigates metabolic dysfunction in pediatric patients with HIV disease. The KetoGator Team focuses on ketogenic therapy in patients with intractable epilepsy. The InvestiGators conduct collaborative interdisciplinary research in the real world of academic research.
