Evening Lecture Series, Hanson Building

May 15 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Evening Lecture Series, Hanson Building with CT's Beardsley Zoo

Sacred Heart University Biology Professor Jo-Marie Kasinak will present Project Limulus: a community-based research study examining the ecology of the Long Island Sound horseshoe crab (Limulus polyphemus) population. “Horseshoe crabs are a foundational species for their ecosystem. They are invaluable to human health, because their blood is used to make Limulus amebocyte lysate, which tests vaccines and other medical devices to ensure they are not contaminated with bacteria. Anyone who has received a flu shot or a COVID-19 vaccine can thank horseshoe crabs,” says Kasinak.

Registration is $10.​ Don’t miss out on other events, visit CT’s Beardsley Zoo website for more.
