Researchers at FHL


Researcher Quotes

  • "It (FHL) advanced my career in the sense that I can represent marine science from first-hand experience to students and at institutions that might not otherwise appreciate it."
  • "Most of success in my research careers was possible because I was introduced and have practical experience working at the diversity of marine organisms at FHL."
  • "FHL provided the affordable resources and facilities absolutely required to make discoveries and longer term work needed to permit a career of continuous, generous NSF and NIH supported independent research."
  • "It was instrumental in firing a desire to do research. At different career stages FHL provided a stage for research, a place to find talented minority graduate students, a summer teaching venue and a writing home."
