With demand and global trends in mind, the University of Florida is focused on powering the new engineer needed to transform the society of the future.
Salvaging plant species from future development sites could contribute much-needed native plant material to nurseries. These efforts can prevent the waste of valuable plant material and reduce the resources required to grow plants for future development sites (such as water, fertilizers and pesticides).
A University of Florida professor is set to speak at Nvidia’s GTC on how artificial intelligence programs can reduce intentional and accidental losses of inventory at registers and self-checkout terminals.
Hope Hersh, a UF/IFAS CALS Ph.D. student studying plant molecular and cellular biology, developed a bread that can be made in space. The project was submitted to NASA's Deep Space Food Challenge.
As successful serial entrepreneurs, Adam Goldstein and Brett Adcock are always looking for the next big thing. EVTOLs, short for electric vertical take-off-and-landing vehicles, had a compelling appeal, but there were challenges. Yet, a chance meeting with a fellow Gator at a conference turned out to become the beginning of an adventure that could get flying taxis into the air.

Heat stress impairs animal performance and health, leading to annual losses of $1.2 billion for the dairy, beef and swine industries in the United States. That’s why Philipe Moriel and other University of Florida scientists are working to reduce the damage to cattle brought on by Florida’s often-oppressive heat.
The UF college is one of only three veterinary colleges in the country to own the technology, which allows the use of highly targeted radiation to deliver more precise and faster treatment of tumors within the abdominal cavity or the chest, where movement occurs due to breathing.
Pedro Sanchez celebrates and pays homage to his Hispanic heritage and cultural history each day by crediting the Latin roots he came from for the passion that inspired him to lead a life’s work dedicated to fighting food insecurity as a pioneer in the field of tropical soils.
Female high school lacrosse players are significantly less likely to sustain concussions and other injuries if they wear headgear, a landmark study led by University of Florida Health researchers has found.
A vaccine-hesitant man and a UF Health doctor met one night at Spurrier's Gridiron Grille by chance. The two got to talking about the vaccine. After three hours of respectful conversation, a decision was made. Hear their story.
On biomedical engineer Ana Maria Porras’ Instagram, microbes that are typically invisible — and often unloved — are reimagined as cuddly, cute and crocheted.
Why do some galaxies just fizzle while others of similar age and magnitude continue birthing stars? That’s a puzzle a University of Florida researcher is working with a multi-university team to try to solve.
The UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and FAMU — a historically Black university and UF’s land-grant partner — will collaborate to recruit and retain traditionally underrepresented students in AI-related education and research.
