Frontiers of Astrophysics

These weekly lunchtime seminars, typically of two 30 minute talks, are on Fridays at 12pm-1pm, in Bryant 7. In the Fall semester, UF Astrophysics faculty introduce their work to students who may be interested in starting new research projects. In the Spring, the seminar continues as Journal Club, where graduate students present journal article review talks.
