CFK VIP Series - "Pandemics Beyond People: Diseases of Lobsters and Corals"

Thursday, April 14, 2022
Event time: 7pm

The College of the Florida Keys continues its 2022 VIP Series with “Pandemics Beyond People: Diseases of Lobsters and Corals.” The presentation will be led by CFK Marine Science faculty member Dr. Abigail Clark. Approximately 97% of all animal species are invertebrates (lack a backbone) and it is estimated that several million additional invertebrate species are yet to be described. Similarly, the diversity of diseases of marine invertebrates is vast and growing. Dr. Abigail Clark will present her recent research on the ecology of lobster and coral diseases in the Caribbean region.

In its eighth season, The College of the Florida Keys’ VIP Series presents new opportunities to educate, entertain, and enrich our community. The 2022 CFK VIP Series features speakers and performers of local, regional, and national prominence to share their visions, ideas, and perspectives on an array of topics. This is the third evening event being held in the College’s Tennessee Williams Theatre in 2022.

Tickets are $5 at the door; admission is free for CFK and Monroe County School District students.
