The Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology has been supported by the Pauley Foundation since 1983 when the first program featured Coral Reef Population Biology. In 2002, we again concentrated on Coral Reefs with the topic, “Molecular Biology of Corals.” The program hosted 17 students including a teacher from the Hawai‘i Department of Education, a student from Pomona College in Claremont, California, and two undergraduate students from the Biomedical Research Infrastructure Network (BRIN) program at Windward Community College.
We thank the Pauley Foundation for their generous and continuing support of this summer program. The Pauley funds helped support travel for the faculty participants and the students who had been selected from a large pool of applicants. The Department of Education supported one teacher and the BRIN program supported the two undergraduate students. We thank also the Division of Aquatic Resources and the Hawai‘i Coral Reef Initiative. Without their support, we would not have been able to offer some of the modern molecular biological laboratory experiments.
By all accounts, the 2002 Summer Program on Molecular Biology of Corals was a real success. The student project reports are included in the program report and the preliminary data have already led to full papers and grant proposal submissions. The Pauley Summer Program fosters research experience and long term collaborative studies, all important components of the Hawai‘i Institute of Marine Biology.
