Carol Reeb

My primary research uses the tools of molecular biology and the theory of population genetics to understand patterns of genetic diversity found in aquatic species, especially highly migratory marine species that are commercially harvested and/or vulnerable to extinction and protected by law. Our work is applicable to monitoring population productivity, improving stock assessments, and sustainably managing fishery populations for the future.

Susanne Sokolow

I am a disease ecologist and veterinarian at Stanford University's Woods Institute for the Environment and an Associate Fellow at Stanford's Center for Innovation in Global Health. I am interested in environmental drivers of infectious disease and creative solutions to protect the health of people and the planet. I currently lead projects on human and planetary health in Senegal, Madagascar, Brazil, and Indonesia, including:The Upstream Alliance ( a research initiative joining partners across the globe for ecological solutions to reduce the parasitic (...)

Ayelet Voskoboynik

For the past 20 years Ayelet has been researching development, stem cell mediating regeneration processes, and immunology in the colonial tunicate Botryllus schlosseri. As a PHD student in the Technion and IOLR (Israel) Ayelet discovered a method to extend the life span of the Botryllus colonies and suggested that this treatment affects the stem cells of the treated colonies. She became a post-doctoral fellow at the Tunicate lab of Irv Weissman in Stanford Hopkins Marine Station and studied stem cell mediating developmental processes. She isolated the first adult stem cell niche and the (...)
