Description/Abstract

This presentation will summarize our program at the University of Florida utilizing support from HHMI and the Provost, plus contributions from several colleges. We have been funded for four years now and will start a new funding cycle in September. We advocate early entry into research laboratories for motivated students and provide awards for a one year research experience. We stress the importance of working toward publication of results in the primary literature. We also provide laboratory courses featuring concepts from chemistry, biology, mathematics, physics and biomedical engineering. Assessment and outreach are important components of our program.
