Hofmann Lab research featured at AAAS annual meeting
Prof. Hofmann presents at AAAS 2012 meeting
The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) will host its annual meeting this coming weekend (Feb 16-20) in Vancouver, BC. This is North America's largest meeting of scientists from all disciplines and will be well-publicized in the international media. Prof. Hofmann is co-organizing a session on ocean acidification research entitled "Acid-Washed Genes and Altered Ecosystems: Biological Tales of Ocean Acidification". Her talk is titled "Acid on Ice: Present Ocean pH Dynamics and Studies of Antarctic Marine Invertebrates", and will encompass the work being done with in-situ pH measurement and research on the sea urchin Sterechinus neumayeri.
The National Science Foundation has selected the OMEGAS project to be featured alongside other important NSF-funded projects (including PISCO) in a display booth (#501) in the Exhibitions Hall at the conference. Dr. Yu will be the OMEGAS project representative from UCSB alongside representatives from Oregon State University.
