This summer some members of the lab will be traveling.
Michelle Weber will be traveling to UNAM in Puerto Morelos, Mexico with Viridiana to work with Roberto Iglesias-Prieto to study coral-algal symbiosis under thermal stress conditions. Then she will be traveling to present a poster at the International Physiological Society meeting in Birmingham, UK.
Aki Ohdera will be meeting Kristen Marhaver in Curacao to collect new jellyfish specimens and learn new techniques that Kristen uses in her own research. Later in the summer he will be working with Bill Fitts lab in Key Largo, Florida to investigate the role of bacterial signals in jellyfish larvae settlement as well as collecting more jellyfish specimens.
Mario Cortes-Garcia, Bishoy Hanna, Michelle Weber and Monica Medina will all be going to the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in Bocas del Toro, Panama to collect coral specimens.
Good luck on all your travels.
