Centers, Labs, and Programs

Organic molecules in natural waters can help us to understand the global cycling of biologically important elements like carbon, nitrogen and phosphorus.

Research in our lab traces the flow of organic matter through marine ecosystems, focusing on the trophic connectivity of species and assemblages in deep pelagic waters.

Research programs focus on marine biomedicine and marine drug discovery, with an emphasis on cancer and both infectious and inflammatory diseases.

Studying color and biological light in nature through their various forms and functions.

Focused on the biosynthesis and bioengineering of marine microbial natural products and in the discovery of new enzyme biocatalysts.
