Medina Lab

Welcome to the Medina Lab! In 2013 we relocated to the Department of Biology at Penn State University. We are excited to have joined a growing team of marine biologists and symbiosis researchers on campus.

Our group has been studying coral-algal-microbial interactions for several years. We use a combination of ecological, physiological, and genomic techniques to understand  these interactions.

Our more recent projects are comparative, and we hope to address a series of evolutionary questions in the different invertebrate systems we are studying.

We are a growing team! Check our members page for details. Some of us got together to have our picture taken on a nice fall afternoon. Mónica is on the sculpture. Others from left to right are Carlos, Ana, Styles, Aki, Viri, Joe, Bishoy, Victoria and Khushboo.
