Summer Research in Marine Organism Health  

Resilience and Response to Environmental Change

The Fort Johnson Undergraduate Summer Research Program is a ten week internship combining independent research with activities to promote career development and communication skills. Participants will investigate impacts of climate change, natural disasters, pollution, and coastal development on the health of marine organisms as individuals, communities, populations and species, using a wide variety of laboratory and field techniques. Up to 10 fellowships are awarded each year through the cooperative efforts of the marine laboratories at Fort Johnson and supported by funds from the National Science Foundation and the College of Charleston School of Sciences and Mathematics.
