A Fulbright Experience: 
Mutual Understanding through People, Places and Science
Preston Theater
4:45 pm – 6:00 pm
Frank Scalzo, Psychology Program
The Fulbright Program provides research and teaching opportunities for U.S. and foreign scholars, and students, to contribute to the mutual understanding of people, places and culture.  The program funds approximately 470 U.S. Scholar awards and 1000 student research awards to 124 countries each year.  I will present information on the Fulbright Program and describe my experiences as a U.S. Fulbright Scholar to the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Ljubljana in Ljubljana, Slovenia in 1995 and most recently in 2018.  The goals of the 2018 project were to strengthen the pharmacy curriculum and to develop techniques to use artificial intelligence to characterize movement patterns in larval zebrafish.  I will describe the progress made in the project with an emphasis on the people, places and science that have contributed to my increased understanding of Slovenia and its people, and the many cultural and scientific contributions they have made.
