CMS Spotlight on Student Research

CMS is proud to engage our students in the research process in meaningful ways. Many coastal and marine science students have unique research opportunities, and we love highlighting their hard work. The CMS Spotlight on Student Research is a way to share student research posters and recognize student contributions to our scientific mission.

To submit a poster to our spotlight, please fill out our survey.



2020 Student Spotlight in Review

2020 has been a strange year, and since we started out highlighting our student research in printed poster form displayed in the CMS lobby, we thought we should do a year-in-review so that all of our student posters could be online for the world to see. Thank you, students, for sharing your exciting work!
