"For three-and-a-half days this summer, School of Medicine Greenville biomedical sciences professor William Roudebush and medical students Sarah Feingold, Sanjana Mandilwar, and Nicole Russell spent their time in a seaside classroom surrounded by microscopes, laptops, and sea urchin embryos.
The team traveled south to the Gulf Specimen Marine Laboratory in Panacea, Florida in July to study aspects of human egg fertilization and preimplantation embryonic development using short-spined sea urchin (Lytechinus variegatus) specimens for their research.
“We collected samples and did lab work, starting very early in the morning, this way the students could also have some free time in the afternoon after their research,” says Roudebush."
