Gerry and Kami are awarded NSF GRFP Fellowships!

BOTH Gery and Kami were funded for three years through NSF. Gerry is studying the evolution and assembly processes of Hawaiian endophytes and Kami is studying the physiology and determinants of Fungal composition in Corals. Way to go both of you!

Jerry Koko joins the lab!

Jerry is pitching in on our endophyte project before joining the Hynson Fungal lab in the fall. Thanks Jerry!

Welcome Leah!

We’re excited that Leah Tooman, our new lab manager, is safely arrived and whipping us into shape.

New Lab Manager

The Amend lab hired a full-time lab manager to be split 50/50 with Nicole Hynson’s lab.
