Congrats to Mark for Winning the 2020 Research Image Contest of the Beckman Institute


Our postdoc Mark just won the 2020 Research Image Contest of the Beckman Institute with his submission, Polyp Dynamics. The image will be framed and hung in the Director's Suite for the next year. It is an optical micrograph of a baby Elkhorn coral (Acropora palmata) polyp that has been inverted and modified for enhanced contrast of the newly formed tentacles. The polyp is growing on one of our novel carbonate reef restoration substrates, which we hope will increase the settlement and survival of juvenile corals into adulthood. This project is a part of our NSF IOS RAISE Convergence grant, Engineering Coral Reef Recovery (Award #1848671)
