New Scripps Florida Web Pages Launched
"The web pages reflect the new programs, departments, and faculty in Florida," says Jann Coury, Scripps Research web production and publications specialist. "It is a wonderful reminder of how far Scripps Florida has come."
The updated pages feature news stories about Scripps Florida programs, an overview of the Scripps Florida group (including a letter from Harry Orf), and links to information on scientific collaborations, lecture series, and community outreach specific to the Florida campus. To visit the Scripps Florida site, go to: http://www.scripps.edu/florida/.
