Seminar Series

The Myology Institute Seminar Series is designed to bring together the UF muscle community to hear the latest muscle biology research from one local and one external speaker each month. This forum is designed to foster discussions and collaborations within the university and provide faculty and students the opportunity to hear from leading national and international muscle researchers. The seminar is held the first and third Thursday of each month from 11:30-12:30pm in the Communicore building, room C1-7.
