Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program

The Edwin W. Pauley Summer Program in Marine Biology is a graduate-level research and training program, which draws faculty and students from around the world. Each summer, a new topic is chosen to be the research focus of that program.

Announcements concerning the topic of the summer program are made around March of each year.

Faculty and researchers give seminars and instruct students in the new field and laboratory techniques. Faculty members frequently use the facilities of the Institute to further their research, or to obtain specimens from our tropical environment. Students are nominated by the professors attending the program, but a few students may be selected independently as well.

Academic credit is not given for the program.


Special Courses

HIMB periodically offers 1-3 week courses that provide training in the theory and practice of specialized marine research areas. The courses are geared towards graduate students and working professionals that would like to gain experience in the methodologies from HIMB faculty and other subject experts.

Past programs included histotechniques and coral disease, coral molecular biological techniques, and a microscopy workshop for plankton identification.
