Developmental Biology in the Ocean
Along with teaching undergraduates, there are opportunities for graduate education at the Hopkins Marine Station!
An intrepid bunch of graduate students in a variety of disciplines from Stanford’s main campus are headed into the final hours of “Developmental Biology in the Ocean 2018.” This three-week course at focuses on the embryology and larval development of a broad range of marine invertebrate phyla with many hours staring down a microscope at a whole world of strange creatures. The main goal of the course is to give students an appreciation of the range of developmental strategies and larval forms in the ocean and why this is critical for constructing hypotheses of animal evolution.
