Penn State students taking Mónica’s Biological Oceanography class are posting on-line about a multitude of topics related to marine biology! Some of these are also posted on the Smithsonian No bones website, and you check them out here.
We will be hosting the Penn State Cnidarian Genomics workshop on April 27th 2015. You can find the schedule, location and other details here.
Mónica and Bishoy (also known as Bishoy Kamel or Bishoy Hanna) are coauthors on another paper that just got published today. Learn more about it on our publications page!
Jaime Lee Profit has joined our team. She is a biology major student and will be working under Joe. Welcome to the Medina Lab!
Mónica and Bishoy are coauthors in a paper recently published in PNAS. The team was lead by Tim Jegla, a Penn State professor, and the article discusses the origins of the nervous system. It was also featured on multiple websites. Some of them are http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_releases/2015-02/ps-cns021215.php http://phys.org/news/2015-03-polarized-nervous.html http://noticiasdelaciencia.com/not/12822/la-extraordinaria-antiguedad-de-un-componente-del-sistema-nervioso-humano/ (in Spanish) http://abcblogs.abc.es/cerebro/public/post/nuestro-sistema-nervioso-se-invento-hace-600-millones-anos-16547.asp/ (in Spanish) http://news.psu.edu/story/345200/2015/02/17/research/nerve-cell-signaling-traced-back-common-ancestor-humans-and-sea
Mónica coauthored a paper with her former postdoc Kristen Marhaver, and Mark Vermeij from the CARMABI Foundation in Curaçao. The article just got published and it was featured on the Penn State News. You can access it on our publications link.
Mónica is teaching Biological Oceanography this spring semester. Her and her students will be blogging about several related topics during the semester. The blog is public and you can check it out here: https://biooce.wordpress.com/
We are excited to welcome Joe Pollock as the Medina Lab’s newest postdoctoral researcher. Joe joins us from James Cook University and the Australian Institute of Marine Science where his PhD dissertation focused on the microbiology, genetics, histopathology and ecology of coral diseases. At Penn State, Joe will expand this work to explore important themes […]
Congratulations Monica and Collin on your new paper! Our latest publication is available here: 2015 microbes in the coral holobiont, and it was featured on the Frontiers Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/Frontiersin/photos/a.98097453753.87051.95775573753/10153029626058754/?type=1
We are glad to announce that our lab member Collin recently graduated! Here is a picture of Monica and Collin in their regalia. Collin will now be working as a Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Washington’s School of Aquatic and Fishery Sciences and the Institute of Marine and Environmental Technology.
