Research Colloquium


Epigenetics Research Colloquium Schedule

The weekly Epigenetics Research Colloquium, organized by the Center for Epigenetics (CEG), provides a public forum for graduate students, postdocs, and faculty to present their latest research to a highly knowledgeable audience in an informal setting.  This Colloquium was started in 1990 as a weekly meeting of four laboratories engaged in research in mammalian genetics, and has gradually transformed into a forum for epigenetics research.  Each scheduled speaker presents an hour-long seminar describing their latest research and results (often unpublished).  Active audience participation and discussion are encouraged.  The Colloquium provides a useful opportunity for speakers to receive helpful critiques, suggestions, and discussion regarding their experimental design, data, and interpretations in an informal setting among colleagues.  It can also serve as a rehearsal for more formal presentations such as a dissertation defense, proposal defense, outside seminar, meeting presentation, etc.  These presentations can also lead to collaborations between CEG lab members with common interests or complementary expertise.

The Colloquium meets on Mondays at 4 PM in Rm 451 of the Cancer Genetics Research Complex and is interspersed with outside speakers from the Center for Epigenetics Seminar Program.  The schedule of speakers is prepared and distributed to CEG members at the beginning of the Fall and Spring semesters.  The Colloquium schedule for the current semester can be found on the Center for Epigenetics website.

Please contact Dr. Yang ( to be added (or to volunteer a student or postdoc) to an upcoming Colloquium schedule.  All UF laboratories engaged in epigenetics research are welcome and encouraged to participate.
