Liz Dinsdale and six of her students presented their research at the 2016 ISME conference held in Montreal. All of us received travel grants from COAST (California State University), FARRIS/EPEF (San Diego State University) or ISME travel grants.
The American Elasmobranch Society (AES) is a group dedicated to research focused on advancing the understanding for shark biology. This meeting is often held in conjunction with the annual Joint Meeting of Ichthyology and Herpetology. This past year (2015) I present my work entitled ‘Revealing a physiological role of shark skin through microbial community analysis’ at the Reno, Nevada meeting.
Michael Doane presented his research “Revealing a physiological role of shark skin through microbial community analysis” at the American Elasmobranch Society, Reno, NV 2015.
Matthew, Megan, Kevin, Michael and Dr. Dinsdale, along with members of Dr. Rob Edwards lab, Genivaldo Gueiros and Daniel Cuevas went to Indonesia in April 2014. The aim of the visit was to discuss possible collaborations with Diponegoro University in Semarang (on island of Java) and Hasanuddin University in Makasar (island of Sulawesi). While there, the group had the opportunity to learn about local customs, talk to Indonesian students, present research work and to also see the amazing coral reef systems of this area. Below you can see a few of the great pictures from the time spent in Indonesia.
