Whatever you’ve got your sights set on, that’s merely the beginning. As a Gator you’ll learn to see beyond the horizon. We measure success not in individual achievement, but where you go from there. Because when reaching your goals is just the starting point, there’s no end to what Gators can accomplish.

Graduate-student: Rosha Poudyal
College of Medicine
Graduate Research Assistant
When two powerful earthquakes struck Nepal in 2015, Rosha Poudyal knew she had to take action. A native of Kathmandu, she created an online fundraising effort that to date has raised approximately $7,000. The funds were used to complete the building of local schools. A graduate student in the biochemistry and molecular biology department, Poudyal plans a visit home when her study and research schedule allows.
Researcher: Leonid Moroz
Whitney Laboratory and McKnight Brain Institute
Distinguished Professor of Neuroscience
When UF neurobiologist Leonid Moroz takes his boat, the Ship-Seq, out to sea, his prey is information, not marlin. The Ship-Seq is equipped with a gene-sequencing lab that enables him to perform on-board analysis of DNA and RNA from zooplankton and jellyfish. He recently was awarded a four-year grant award from the National Science Foundation to fund his research.
The challenges facing our world are bigger than one person. One
organization. One university. The Gator Good is our
campaign to combine those efforts and solve those global problems.
Because together, our impact is greater.
