Subscribing to the News
Several options are available for learning about CTSI news and events.
In addition to visiting the CTSI portal, you can subscribe to the CTSI listserv by emailing Claire Baralt, Assistant Director, Communications, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Another option is an internet technology called RSS (Real Simple Syndication). RSS provides “channels” of related stories that can be displayed on your phone, in your browser, on your desktop or laptop computer. Software (apps) for reading news are quite popular and readily attained for many operating systems and devices.
The UF CTSI portal displays all its news via RSS channels. That means you can subscribe to our RSS channels to get news of interest, based on topics. You can get only research news, or only news of upcoming events.
The UF CTSI publishes news in several categories. Most stories appear in more than one category. So, for example, a research seminar would appear in both “research” and “events.” If you subscribe to just research or just events, you will still see the news item. If you subscribe to both, you’ll see it on both channels.
Below is more information about the CTSI’s RSS channels and how to subscribe.
