“I want them to think about the grandeur and beauty of the ocean, and how important it is to human life.” Dr. Pieribone and OceanX team up with GMA to explore a beautiful Atlantic coral reef! While they dove on a section that was teeming with life, Florida’s great barrier reef is facing a serious existential threat. Their research can help us understand why.
The scientific discoveries made during these explorations help fuel further discoveries in Dr. Pieribone’s laboratory on the campus of Yale University. The John B. Pierce Laboratory supports both the exploratory phase and the biological application of these discoveries in the laboratory. Follow us to see the exciting things we are up to.
