The UCF Applied Physiology Laboratory makes a concerted effort to publish our findings in respected academic journals and present at regional, national, and international conferences. In addition to contributing to collective body of knowledge in a given field, presenting original data at conferences is a fun way for the lab's students to enhance their self-confidence and network with other scientists.
