Collaborative research of circulating tumor cells is helping Professor Benjamin Martin to understand how these cells exit blood vessels and invade news sites on the body. For his work with the cells he is receiving a $600,00 grant to advance cancer research.
Joseph Warren’s research involves the use of underwater acoustics, a non-invasive way to measure and study a variety of oceanographic processes. One focus of his research is the foraging behavior of apex predators such as marine mammals and other ocean predators. A current area of study is the increase in nearshore humpback and other whale sightings along the coast of New York after decades of only rare whale sightings. He believes these increased sightings could be due to an increase in large aggregations of Atlantic menhaden (a prey fish also called bunker) that occur in the area and the fact that humpback whale populations appear to be increasing due to protection laws.
