Left Ocala at 8:00 and traveled to Whitney Lab with the SMArt Girls. Spent the morning learning about some of the amazing research projects underway at Whitney. Sea turtles are having surgery to remove tumorous masses in their soft tissue at the new turtle hospital. Cnidarian genome mapping may have a significant impact on the field of neuroscience due to the unique function of their stem cells and their ability to regenerate. Scientists at Whitney are studying these things and more. They are asking important questions and finding answers which may impact the world.
