Students are returning from their holiday break and preparing for another semester at the Grice Marine Lab. Classes begin for the 2010 Spring Semester on Monday, January 11th. Courses for this semester include Oceanography, Biometry, Marine Molecular Ecology, Physical Oceanography and Biology of Fishes. Graduate students who have completed their coursework will be working on their thesis research. Our students have research opportunities at Grice or with one of the Fort Johnson partners including the SC Department of Natural Resources, Medical University of South Carolina, National Institute of Standards and Technology or National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. We have a new student joining the Graduate Program in Marine Biology this semester. Leah Fisher, originally from Sullivan’s Island, SC, completed her B.S. at Duke University in May 2009. Welcome to the program, Leah!
