Each summer for the past 19 years, the Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology has hosted a program centered around a different subject in marine biology. This program is supported by the Edwin W. Pauley Foundation. Programs of earlier years have covered coral reefs, marine mammals, photobiology, biology of sex-changing fishes, endocrinology of marine animals, and others.
The program lasted for two months, with faculty members and researchers from the U.S. and foreign countries attending for two weeks, and selected pre-doctoral students attending for the full two months. 21 Ph.D.s from six countries, and 15 students were in residence for the 1998 program, which was titled, “Bridging the Gap: Contributions of Cellular and Molecular Biology to the Understanding of the Environmental Physiology of Marine Animals.” The students were exposed to many recent discoveries in endocrinology, and their laboratory experience during the summer instruction helped them learn about new techniques and equipment.
Participating Countries in the 1998 Pauley Summer Program: Australia, Canada, France, Israel, Japan, United States
