Rehabilitation Science Seminar Series

Biweekly Rehabilitation Science Seminars are designed to foster interdisciplinary discussions and collaborations. The lecture series includes both local and external experts in rehabilitation-related research, with a primary emphasis on neuromuscular plasticity. This forum provides the students an opportunity to get familiar with research activities at the University of Florida and Rehabilitation Centers and Institutes across the country. Following the presentations, students, postdoctoral fellows, and faculty are given an opportunity to meet with the speakers and discuss research ideas and projects.

Spring 2022 Rehabilitation Science Seminars will meet noon – 1 p.m. via Zoom.
