Mission – Hawaii

2018 June 15 th to 25th Kaneohe Bay

Field work focusing on coral abnormal growth (tumors ?) in collaboration with le Centre Scientifique de Monaco, the Hawaiian Institute of Marine Biology of the University of Hawaii and Tara Foundation.

Similar to classical model organisms, these “tumors” represent a unique opportunity for multiple studies that would enrich our knowledge of coral biology, as well as coral innate immunity, which shows close similarities to humans.
