Florida Core Network Event

Friday, August 15 | 9:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.

All Florida-based cores (life science service centers) are invited to participate in a one day networking event to be hosted on the University of Florida campus. Each core will be given an opportunity to introduce themselves, their personnel and capabilities to the rest of the group. The event will end with a poster reception. Depending on the response, time will be set aside for networking within areas of expertise. The purpose of this event is to connect cores in Florida, putting faces to names and becoming aware of each other’s capabilities.

The deadline for registration is 4:30 p.m. August 8, 2014. Questions regarding registration should be directed to ICBR-News@ad.ufl.edu.
