Februrary 2010 Trip to Barbados

Jennifer Cuillerier, Rebecca Pike, Beth Pearce (grad students) Brad Haltli, and Russ Kerr spent a week in Barbados to conduct field work. We were joined by two graduate students in Dr. Tinto’s group – Ann Seebaran and Troy Cumberbatch. Collections of invertebrates were conducted for the purpose of isolating microbes for drug discovery projects, and Jenn, Becca and Beth conducted field work for a Marine Natural Products course.
