UF Research Shows a Step Toward Restoring Sea Urchins: ‘The Lawnmowers of Reefs’

Coral reef ecosystems are severely threatened by pollution, disease, overharvesting, and other factors. For thousands of years, long-spined sea urchins helped keep reefs intact. They eat seaweed, which can kill or seriously damage coral. Now with the urchin population diminishing, UF scientists are stepping up their efforts to enhance urchin populations.

UF Helps Drive AI Education for Teens in Florida

AMBY, which stands for AI Made By You, was piloted this summer as a part of Camp DIALOGS, an NSF-funded project aimed at making artificial intelligence and computer science more accessible, particularly for students in lower-income areas. The camp is a joint effort between UF’s Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering and College of Education and aligns with the university’s integrated approach to AI.

How Florida Researchers Are Using UF’s Supercomputer

High-impact research is in full swing on the University of Florida’s powerful supercomputer, with faculty and students from across the State University System using HiPerGator ⁠— one of the smartest machines in the world — to advance critical work in areas including the environment, technology and medicine.

UF researchers discover new way to inhibit virus that causes COVID-19

When the virus that causes COVID-19 enters the body, it hijacks cellular proteins and suppresses the human inflammatory response, allowing the virus to spread. University of Florida researchers have discovered a novel way in the lab to fight rapidly evolving strains of coronaviruses by breaking that cycle.

Researchers Leverage AI To Identify Sepsis Within 12 Hours

Researchers at the University of Florida have created and are using a diagnostic tool that leverages artificial intelligence to identify a patient’s likelihood of developing sepsis — and how severe it will be — as soon as 12 hours after their hospital admission.

UF College of Pharmacy Moves Into Top 3 of National Research Rankings

The University of Florida College of Pharmacy moved up two places to No. 3 in the nation for total research funding in the latest American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy, or AACP, report released June 23. The No. 3 ranking is the highest ever achieved by the college when compared to peer institutions
