UF Core Facility Networking Event
Thursday, March 5 | 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. | Straughn IFAS Extension Professional Dev. Ctr.
- The event is intended specifically for faculty and staff working within UF cores.
- The initial vision is a simple networking event where all cores share information about services in five-minute “lightning rounds”/“flash talk” style presentations or via a poster presentation.
- A separate event in the fall, hosted by the UF Core Network, will target our primary users, researchers at UF.
The deadline for registration is February 23, 2015 . Questions regarding registration should be directed to ICBR-News@ad.ufl.edu.
