Coral Samples Arrive at Centre Scientifique de Monaco

The coral samples collected in Hawaii by Drs. Dorota Czerucka and François Seneca, researchers at Centre Scientifique de Monaco, have arrived at the laboratory and are alive and in good condition for continuing the research. The 140 samples include both healthy and diseased pieces of coral from colonies off the coast of Oahu Island in Hawaii. The research area is focused on innate immunity in the corals and in humans, and the researchers will study the means used by the coral to fight the diseased tissue.
