Her research project studied the microbiological community present in dolphins and was chosen from 10 others and tied for first place with Darius Sanford, who worked at Gray’s Reef National Marine Sanctuary and who will also attend the ASLO
meeting.

Zayas worked in the lab of Skidaway Institute professor Marc Frischer and was mentored by Savannah State University graduate student Kevin McKenzie.

Zayas is a rising junior and biology major at the Universidad Metropolitana in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

She says she plans to complete her bachelor’s degree in Puerto Rico and then
attend graduate school.

    While there is plenty of worry about how violent crime will affect tourism, the real concern is how it will affect the decision of residents whether or not to stay. The idea of leaving for a more safe locale seems almost inconceivable to those of us who’ve invested many years and whole lifetimes here. But Savannah’s just like anyplace else— people and businesses can decide it’s just not worth it anymore.
