Join us to learn about the people-powered science opportunity called Monkey Health Explorer, where you can help researchers study the health of rhesus macaque monkeys on the island of Cayo Santiago in Puerto Rico. Marianne Barrier, Genomics & Microbiology Research Lab Manager, will show us how to contribute to the project on Zooniverse.org and identify different types of blood cells. Learn how the team of researchers uses this information to understand which monkeys are healthy and sick, and how it might impact their behavior.
