Coral reefs and ocean habitats of Hawai'i provide a natural laboratory for the study of marine organisms, their evolution, ecology, and human interactions. Join a new generation of graduate students at the University of Hawai'i at Mānoa who are immersed in this research and will become future leaders in the world of Marine Biology.
