The University of Florida Center for Exercise Science (CES) is a multidisciplinary research center housed in the Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology. CES is dedicated to investigating the complex interactions between physical activity, muscle, heart, brain and age-related diseases. The primary goal of scientists in the CES is to improve human health by advancing knowledge through research. Moreover, the CES provides an outstanding laboratory environment to educate UF students and post-doctoral fellows who will become the next generation of health-related exercise scientists and clinicians.

The Center for Exercise Science hosts a seminar series which brings speakers to campus who are reknowned in their fields — click HERE for more info.
