Getting ready to go...

It's just three weeks until I head down to the Antarctic with two UMaine students and my technician Claudia. So things are really starting to ramp up, getting other work squared away, lab work finished, boxes packed and making sure we have absolutely everything we need to go on a research expedition. We've already sent most of our equipment down to Southern Chile, where it'll be loaded onto the ARV Nathaniel B. Palmer, ready for our cruise. Take a look over at our Expedition Blog, we'll be updating that as we head south!

Congratulations Dr. Padilla-Gamino!

Congratulations to Jackie, who passed her Ph.D. defense today in Hawaii. Jackie has been working in the lab on the reproduction of Montipora capitata on Oahu as part of her thesis, and goes on to a fabulous postdoc in Santa Barbara. We wish you all the best Dr. Jackie and can't wait to see those publications!
