University of North Florida Lab

SEZARC has a unique collaboration with the University of North Florida (UNF) in Jacksonville in which we have established one of our endocrine laboratories in the Biology building. This laboratory is one of the sites where we process and analyze biological samples from numerous zoo and aquarium species, and students at UNF can participate in this process to develop real-life skills and experience that allows them to build their resume and deepen their understanding of reproductive biology and conservation science. Students can volunteer in the lab, sign up for independent study or internships, and participate in research projects.
