I will again present the 3-credit graduate-level course at Nova
Southeastern University's (NSU) Oceanographic Center: Corals from the
Inside Out: Comparative Histopathology
Information is available at
This course presents the microscopic anatomy of scleractinian corals and
gorgonians (Phylum Cnidaria, Class Anthozoa) to support studies on their
ecology, physiology, reproduction, biochemistry, systematics, molecular
biology/genetics, immunology, embryology, and pathology. Topics covered
include histology; coral diseases; sample collection, preservation,
processing, and histoslide preparation (lecture and discussion only, no
laboratory); and slide reading of healthy and diseased specimens using
light microscopy and virtual microscopy. The course begins May 11 with
online readings, research, and assignments, and then students will meet
at NSUOC for one week of full-time lecture and laboratory sessions July
13-17 (with final exam on the 17th); students complete assignments
before the course ends July 31. Participants may bring histoslides from
their own research to share with the group and discuss with Dr. Peters.
Registration begins March 16.
Non-NSU students should contact Melissa Dore (missy at nova.edu) NOW to
learn how to register and complete the paperwork. The cost is $3,294 for
the 3-credit course or $1,647 to audit the course, plus application

the area can reserve a hotel room at a discounted rate (please contact
