BCH 4905 Science for Life Seminar

1 credit
R, 9th period (Fall)

This course provides an in-depth look at leading-edge research conducted by professors at the University of Florida on a wide range of topics. Each week in this one credit class, three professors present on the work of their laboratories. They describe what system they study, why that is important, how they conduct the research, and opportunities for undergraduate students to get involved in the research. The professors come from many different departments around the university in as many as eight different colleges. Students are encouraged to conduct a face-to-face interview with at least one faculty member to learn more details about the person and the research.
