Marine Biomedical Program: The ultimate goal of this program is to use results from current studies to contribute to a better understanding of health problems in higher animals, including humans, and/or to benefit the wild populations of the particular organism studied. A major research effort in the program is directed at understanding why sharks and their skate and ray relatives have a low incidence of disease.

Marine Immunology Program: The program focuses on basic and applied immunological research of marine animals. Basic research efforts contribute to a better understanding of comparative vertebrate immune function as well as phylogenetic insights into human immunity.
