Seminar Series

The Myology Institute Seminar Series is designed to bring together the UF muscle community to hear the latest muscle biology research from local (UF) and external speakers. 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 WEDNESDAY of each month from 3:00-4:00pm Eastern timezone in Communicore C1-3 and via Zoom.
