Each year, UF CARE hosts two external speakers as a part of our monthly seminar series; one a more “basic” scientist, the other more “applied” and YOU have the opportunity to suggest potential speakers!

Our external slots for 2019-2020 are filled but we are already looking to 2020-2021. Go to our Nomination Form and place your nomination! Because we schedule speakers in advance, nominations are reviewed twice a year by the seminar series committee.

Co-Hosted Speakers:

Do you work with a group shares interests with UF CARE? Depending on resource and scheduling availability, UF CARE will periodically co-host speakers with other groups on campus. If your group is addressing a topic that you believe would be of interest to CARE members, please contact the UF CARE administrative office directly ( if we have open opportunities, you’ll be asked to provide additional detail.

Thanks for your help so we can continue to bring in outstanding speakers for the center!
