    Centers for Oceans and Human Health: a unified approach to the challenge of harmful algal blooms

    Harmful algal blooms (HABs) are one focus of the national research initiatives on Oceans and Human Health (OHH) at NIEHS, NOAA and NSF. All of the OHH Centers, from the east coast to Hawaii, include one or mor...
