Welcome to the MBL
Discover us. Discover biology. Discover you.
Whether you are new to the MBL or a longtime member of our scientific family we invite you to explore what is so special about the MBL. Our blend of research and education has been transformative for generations of biologists, since the first students and faculty arrived at this seaside marine lab in 1888.
Anchored in this tradition but pointed firmly towards the future, today’s MBL addresses some of the world’s most pressing scientific questions, committed to fundamental biological discovery and with a strategic focus on understanding the oceans, marine life, and the science of our changing planet.
