The ░─├┼┴¨║¤▓╩appdraws a unique mix of researchers ranging from early-career scientists to Nobel Laureates, and students at levels from high school to postdoctoral. Their interactions have led to multiple, transformative breakthroughs in our understanding of biology.
Once largely a feature of summers at the MBL, this convening power is now evident year-round. Well over 500 scientists and faculty are involved annually in our research and educational programs ÔÇô some based at ░─├┼┴¨║¤▓╩appfull-time in our┬áDivision of Research, some coming to the ░─├┼┴¨║¤▓╩appfor portions of the year as part of the┬áWhitman Center, and some leading or lecturing in our broad range of research courses.
Research and education at the ░─├┼┴¨║¤▓╩appfocuses on fundamental biological discovery to explore the origins, diversity, and nature of life on a changing planet and to inform the human condition.
There is no better place to do this research than here. ItÔÇÖs perfect.
░─├┼┴¨║¤▓╩appis a place where science happens, collaborations form, impossible ideas become reality. I think it attracts like-minded people who want to think outside the box. Over the years, IÔÇÖve developed a lot of personal and professional contacts here.
