Watch and Listen as MCR Principal Investigators and UC Santa Barbara professors Dr Russ Schmitt and Dr Sally Holbrook explain the importance of undergraduate and graduate student mentorship.  The professors of Ecology, Evolution, and Marine Biology have spent countless summers guiding undergraduate researchers through hands-on field work at the University of California’s Gump Research Station. Situated on the island of Moorea in the South Pacific, this collaborative and interdisciplinary setting allows students to gain field and laboratory experience, practice the research process, work alongside career scientists, and ultimately explore life in academia through their participation with the U.S. National Science Foundation's Moorea Coral Reef Long-Term Ecological Research site.
