Dr. Traylor-Knowles is an Assistant Professor in Marine Biology and Ecology at University of Miami, Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences. She received her B.S. and M.S. in Cell and Molecular Biology from Johns Hopkins University, her PhD. in Biology from Boston University, and did a NSF Ocean Sciences Postdoctoral fellowship at Hopkins Marine Station, Stanford University. Dr. Traylor-Knowles is passionate about innovative ocean conservation solutions and mentorship. She leads the Cnidarian Immunity Laboratory which investigates the evolution of immunity in corals, sea anemones and ctenophores. Specifically, her research focuses on disease processes, environmental stress, symbiosis, wound healing, regeneration, and cellular mechanisms of immunity. She is also the Founder and Director of Black Women in Ecology, Evolution and Marine Science and is an advocate for Black women in science and academia.
