Consortium Programs and Partnerships
We have had the privilege of developing our water testing products with dedicated collaborators. Thank you to our funding and scientific partners.
Our history with harmful algal bloom detection and monitoring began with a USA-Ireland partnership funded by the US National Science Foundation. We have active collaborations with teams from NOAA-Charleston, Bowling Green State University, Bigelow Laboratory for Ocean Science, University of Toledo, Ohio State University, University of Michigan, and Limnotech.
Our active programs include:
Monitoring and Event Response to Harmful Algal Blooms (MERHAB)
Funded by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration/ National Center for Costal Ocean Science (NOAA/NCCOS)
Prevention, Control, and Mitigation of Harmful Algal Blooms (PCMHAB) Freshwater Program
Funded by NOAA/NCCOS
Marine and Shellfish Program
Funded by NOAA/NCCOS and United States Department of Agriculture/National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA/NIFA)
Algal Species Identification Program
Funded by US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE)
