The Rodgers Lab broadly focuses on research questions in immunotoxicology and comparative immunology in coastal and marine organisms. Ongoing projects include examining humoral immune responses in wild sea turtles, understanding how PFAS chemicals influence intestinal immunity and microbial assemblages in fish species, and exploring the influence of multistressor scenarios (particularly those indicative of future climate conditions) on immunity of various marine organisms.
