UF/IFAS Research Facilities

UF/IFAS provides research support for faculty members assigned to 14 departments and one school on the UF main campus, plus off-campus facilities including 12 Research and Education Centers, six Research and Demonstration Sites (that include two biological stations), a research forest, an 850-acre dairy farm, and a fuel ethanol pilot plant.

Our researchers play leading roles in campus-wide research initiatives such as the Emerging Pathogens Institute, Florida Climate Institute, UF Genetics Institute, and UF Water Institute. They also are involved in UF/IFAS-based centers of excellence such as the Center for Aquatic and Invasive Plants, Center for Food Distribution and Retailing, Center for Landscape Conservation and Ecology, Plant Innovation Center, and the Center for Public Issues Education in Agriculture and Natural Resources.
