The Marine Biological Laboratory, a hub for research and education and an affiliate of the University of Chicago, convenes biologists from around the world each year to advance the mission of biological discovery.
Support is available for scientists to come to the Marine Biological Laboratory for 4 to 10 weeks to conduct research, year-round.
The Whitman Center Fellowship application deadline is December 15, 2022.
We gather 1,000 scientists and students from around the world each year.
60 Nobel Prize winners have ties to the MBL.
MBL scientists have studied more than 200 different kinds of marine organisms.
The MBL hosts over 100 high school students every year.
Diversity & Inclusion at the MBL
Since 1888, the MBL has hosted thousands of researchers, students and faculty from all over the world. It is precisely this wealth in perspectives and experiences that makes our community unique. For this reason, the lab strives to maintain a welcoming environment where diverse perspectives and experiences are combined with an atmosphere of collaboration and training in efforts to advance scientific inquiry and discovery.
