Erinn Muller is in a Race to Save Florida’s—and the World’s—Coral
Muller—one of a small percentage of women to get an advanced marine science degree—won a prestigious postdoctoral fellowship at Mote that gave her two years to build her own coral research program.
For the last four years, Florida’s coral reef tract, which extends 360 miles down the seaward side of the Florida Keys, has been under attack by a mystery disease that is threatening the survival of what is the world’s third-largest living coral reef.
Erin Muller, the first science director of Mote Marine Laboratory’s Coral Reef Research & Restoration Center, is on the front line, examining how climate change may be encouraging bacterial and viral infections.
