University of Florida researchers have found a new use for “genetic scissors” to detect RNA, a discovery that could lead to faster, more accurate and less expensive diagnostic tests for a host of diseases.
University of Florida faculty conducted a record $1.25 billion in research in fiscal year 2023, a nearly 15% increase over 2022.
UF is expanding its successful pilot program, which aims to equip Florida youth with essential skills needed in an emerging AI-enabled workforce, to 12 school districts.
The leadership from nearly all of Florida’s engineering schools will converge on Tallahassee this week to discuss issues of common interest. Dubbed the Florida Engineering Dean’s Summit (FEDS), the event is envisioned as an annual event where academic leaders can explore solutions for shared problems and develop joint initiatives.
Eleven students from the Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, as well as nine alumni, were selected to receive awards from the National Science Foundation’s Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP).
We asked a panel of UF AI experts to discuss the implications of a proposed six-month moratorium on further development of AI systems more powerful than GPT-4.
A joint project between the University of Florida and Synhelion, a global pioneer in the field of carbon-neutral solar fuels, has been awarded $2.7M from the U.S. Department of Energy Solar Energy Technologies Office (SETO). The project aims to accelerate the large-scale development and deployment of concentrating solar thermal power (CSP) technology to produce green hydrogen for industrial decarbonization and electric power generation and storage.
Dear Colleagues, Please join me in congratulating Richard Vigeant for agreeing to serve as the next Director of the Research & Engineering Education Facility (REEF), which is a College-led educational site that has served Eglin Air Force Base for more than 50 years. Richard joined the College in 2017 as the founding Director of Florida Applied Research in Engineering (FLARE) …
Most of us have the luxury of not having to think about transportation and mobility. However, about 41 million Americans have disabilities and here in Florida, with its older demographic, providing more mobility options become a higher priority. A research team at the University of Florida (UF) recently studied persons with disabilities’ attitudes about utilizing automated shuttles and found that …
A team of University of Florida researchers led by Yong Zeng, Ph.D.,an associate professor in the department of chemistry, an affiliate faculty member in the J. Crayton Pruitt Family department of biomedical engineering and a UF Health Cancer Center member, has developed a promising new CRISPR-powered method for noninvasive blood tests that could help clinicians diagnose cancer at earlier stages.
