Establishing Early Undergraduate Student Research and Enriching Research Experiences Remains the Primary Mission of the Science for Life Program.
The X-Laboratory is a two-semester, inquiry-based laboratory curriculum focusing on major themes and concepts in biology, chemistry and physics with modern and quantitative research.
The Science For Life Seminar course provides new students with presentations from research-active faculty, illustrating opportunities available for student research.
The Intramural Undergraduate Research Award allows talented, motivated, and responsible students at the University of Florida to get a rapid start in research and connect with the most outstanding faculty mentors at UF as early undergraduates.
The Extramural Undergraduate Research Award allows outstanding undergraduates with previous research experience to get a significant off-campus research experience at dozens of locations around the world.
Allowing students to conduct research in faculty laboratories early-on during their undergraduate careers has provided time to allow projects to mature and result in successful submissions to scientific journals or presentations at national conferences and meetings.
The annual Creativity in the Arts and Sciences Event (CASE) allows science and arts students the opportunity to collaborate on projects that incorporate science and art. CASE features science posters, art exhibits, and dance/musical/theatre performances.
