Twenty research teams are getting a crash course on all things ocean this fall.

The groups, from seven universities across the country, are among the latest cohort participating in Lab2Market Oceans.

The seven-week program, hosted by Memorial and part of the Ocean Startup Project, provides post-doctoral fellows, graduate students and faculty the opportunity to explore their ocean research ideas in a new way.

The Canada Research Chair in Biological Oceanographic Processes and a professor of ocean sciences at Memorial is the 2022 recipient of the prestigious A.G. Huntsman Award for Excellence in the Marine Sciences.

The award is being presented to Dr. Uta Passow by the Royal Society of Canada and recognizes her significant contributions to our understanding of the ocean and its ability to respond to anthropogenic changes such as climate change and oil pollution.
