Marine Biolab Researchers speak during break

By Meagan Wang

Researchers from Coastal Marine Biolabs talked about a summer program for high school students at break Monday in Ahmanson Lecture Hall. Scientific Co-Directors Ralph Imondi and Linda Santschi introduced the summer program and gave a brief overview of CMB.

They have four research programs available: Biomes to Genomes, NeuroLab, Nature’s Engineers and Biomolecular Messengers. The summer program is a nine day residential program in Ventura County. Students will learn how to dive as well as take part in the CMB’s research laboratory.

One of CMB’s ongoing projects is the “Barcode of Life Initiative.” CMB researchers said students will also have the opportunity to get their name published with their research.
