I am a second year master’s student pursuing a degree in Pharmaceutical Sciences with an emphasis in Environmental Toxicology. My anticipated graduation date is December 2014. I am currently working on assessing different immune functions in the Hawaiian coral Montipora capitata and the role in protecting the coral against Montipora white syndrome, a tissue loss disease that affects only this species. Specifically, I am looking at immune enzymes, including antioxidants, and antimicrobial activity. My research advisor is Dr. Deborah Gochfeld.
