Faculty Seminar Series

The Scripps Florida Society of Research Fellows hosts the Faculty Seminar Series once in two months.

With our external seminar series, we learn about advances in research from distinguished scientists from around the world, but we so rarely have the opportunity to hear about important research and discoveries made at our own institute.

Part of the mission of the SF-SRF is to foster strong professional and personal relationships within the Scripps Florida community. Through the Faculty Lecture Series, it is the hopes of the SRF that we will be able to highlight the high quality of research conducted at Scripps Florida and foster community relationships, both professional and personal. With six departments and approximately 60 faculty members, we plan to invite one faculty member to present his or her research on the 2nd Friday of every month.

Please e-mail Andrii Monastyrskii for any further information.
