2016 Celebration of Research

COM60-logoThe UF COM Celebration of Research is a wonderful opportunity for us to reflect on the strength of our research programs and appreciate the breadth, quality, and merit of the science conducted within the College. This event reminds us that it is through discovery and the impact of our research that we improve the quality of human life, and in doing so, advance the College of Medicine and the University of Florida.
