Short for “Pollutant Responses in Marine Organisms,” the biennial international PRIMO symposium will bring researchers from 26 countries to Long Beach May 15-18, thanks in large part to key organizers from CSU Long Beach.
PRIMO is supported by several organizations – including the California State University’s Council on Ocean Affairs, Science and Technology (COAST), which is sponsoring a session on “Impacts of Changing Ocean Conditions.”
In roughly 120 talks, researchers will present findings related to societal and industrial toxins in a range of organisms, from microbes to whales. Talks will also focus on tracking animals, biomarkers, bioaccumulation, and endocrine disruption.
Details are in this CSU news release: CSU’s COAST, Others to Convene at Global PRIMO Sessions
to Address Toxins in Aquatic Life.
