Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering, in partnership with NASA, is making a significant contribution to the Laser Interferometer Space Antenna (LISA) mission. UF is the only academic institution in the United States to be awarded a contract to develop hardware that will fly on the LISA mission.
The urgency to fortify and expand Florida’s semiconductor manufacturing ecosystem echoed through the halls of Malachowsky Hall for Data Science and Information Technology at the University of Florida Feb. 7-9 during the 2024 Florida Semiconductor Week.
The National Academy of Engineering has elected UF Distinguished Professor Christine Schmidt, Ph.D., to the academy for 2024 in recognition of her more than 25 years of work to help advance the fields of neural tissue engineering and wound healing and for her leadership in diversifying bioengineering.
In a groundbreaking study published in Nature, scientists reveal that the return of sea otters to their former habitat in a Central California estuary has slowed erosion of the area’s creekbanks and marsh edges on average by 69%.
The University of Florida’s supercomputer, known as HiPerGator, is being put through the paces on more than 800 research projects across all 16 of UF’s colleges, accelerating impactful work that might have previously been unfeasible or even impossible. Built with $50 million in support from UF alumnus Chris Malachowsky and tech company NVIDIA, which he co-founded, the machine is one of the fastest AI supercomputers in academia.
University of Florida faculty members with a wide range of expertise in space-related research are coming together to form the UF Space Mission Institute, with $2.5 million in support from UF President Ben Sasse’s strategic funding initiative.
A space institute designed to expand exploration of the cosmos, a project to improve construction through robotic automation and AI, an initiative to propel the university to global prominence in sports performance, and an effort to improve agriculture and environmental sustainability are among four new initiatives receiving strategic funding at the University of Florida.
David P. Arnold, a professor in ECE, was one of two UF researchers to be named a Fellow of the National Academy of Inventors. Arnold focuses on research in electrophysics.
Machine learning algorithms designed to diagnose a common infection that affects women showed a diagnostic bias among ethnic groups, Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering researchers found.
A large language model-based software tool for leveraging the capabilities of UF’s HiPerGator supercomputer and an investment in space for cutting-edge science collaborations are among seven new projects receiving strategic funding at the University of Florida.
