State of Science 2021

The St. Petersburg Innovation District hosted the 4th annual State of Science.  This year’s event began with a look back by the Innovation District Board Members at the progress the District has made since its formation five years ago.  The program then quickly moved into five fast-paced, six-minute presentations from the innovators.  This year's theme was Tackling Critical Problems in St. Petersburg that have National and International Implications.

The presenters were:

Dr. Steve Murawski, USF College of Marine Science: Leading the Way in Ocean Mapping Technology

Dr. Sean Doody, USF College of Arts and Sciences: Tracking Wildlife and Spread of Diseases Like COVID
