5th Annual Graduate Research Symposium

The UF BREATHE Center was pleased to co-sponsor the Annual Graduate Research Symposium. The Society for Advancing Native Americans and Chicanos in Research (SACNAS) and the UF Black Graduate Student Organization (BGSO) worked together to host this event, which was an opportunity for students to share and enhance their research with other graduate departments throughout campus, gain insightful feedback from faculty and peers, and network with people in and out of their professional fields.

In addition to engaging in a competitive poster session, the students heard a keynote presentation from Dean Hub Brown (the newly appointed dean of the UF College of Journalism and Communications) and panel discussions focused on “Innovation & the Job Market.” On behalf of the McKnight Brain Institute, the BREATHE team tabled the event and informed attendees about multiple predoctoral and postdoctoral funding opportunities across campus and within the BREATHE Training Program. BREATHE Center Director, Dr. Gordon Mitchell, also gave a brief presentation to students about the center, our training program, and available funding for trainees.
