black scientists scavenger hunt

MBI and the UF Department of Neuroscience

Black History Month is an opportunity to understand Black Histories, going beyond stories of racism and slavery to spotlight Black achievement.

To honor the contributions of Black scientists, the MBI and the UF Department of Neuroscience is hosting a scavenger hunt that is open to any faculty, staff or trainee in the MBI community (regardless of which building you are in).


  • Visit each floor of the MBI to gather information from the History of Black Scientists timeline posters.
    (Permission to use these PDF timeline posters was generously provided by the American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology.)
  • Answer the questions on the form below by Feb. 28th. You can submit these either virtually or printed and brought to Felecia Milton, whose office is located on the 5th floor of the MBI. 
  • Please join our brunch celebrating the Black faculty, trainees and staff in the MBI community who contribute their efforts, knowledge and creativity to the past, present and future of neuroscience: 10:00-11:30 a.m., Monday, Feb. 28 in L5-101A (5th Floor of MBI).

The labs with the highest percentage of members completing the Scavenger Data Hunt will be entered into a raffle for a lab lunch!
