Diane Poehls studies the dispersal of hydrothermal vent creatures.

Looking in the Genes for a Guide to Living

MIT/WHOI Joint Program student Diane Poehls Adams (now a postdoc at the National Institutes of Health) prepares biological samples for genetic analysis in the spring of 2004. Poehls Adams worked with WHOI biologists Lauren Mullineaux and Tim Shank to study how the larvae of hydrothermal vent creatures are dispersed throughout the ocean by ocean currents and other factors.  Poehls Adams is now studying sea urchins, particularly the development of larvae and their behavioral "sensing" of their environment.
