HEB Brown Bag Research Series

The Brown Bag is an informal research seminar that is typically held 3-5 times per semester. The term “Brown Bag” refers to the seminar being held at lunchtime (from noon-1pm), thus attendees can bring their lunch and eat during the seminar. Brown Bag provides faculty and students an opportunity to present in an interactive manner about research at any stage and receive feedback. Often times, Brown Bag is used as an opportunity to practice talks to be delivered externally or elsewhere at UF or to share recent talks given elsewhere for the benefit of those who were not able to attend.
