MBL Celebrates Successful Summer Season
Hundreds of students from 60 countries headed to Woods Hole this summer to take part in one of MBL’s celebrated Advanced Research Training Courses (ARTCs). The season kicked off on April 17, with the Analytical & Quantitative Light Microscopy (AQLM) Advanced Research Training Course and continued at breakneck pace until early September.
This summer, the MBL welcomed 464 students for 20 different courses covering everything from computational neuroscience to embryology to reproductive biology to microbial diversity. Students hailed from 284 different institutions around the world.
After the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic limited the number of students in 2020 and 2021, MBL Education was excited to safely welcome back a full cohort of students this summer.
“We were thrilled to welcome students back to campus this summer. It was amazing to see the campus full and great minds from different courses connecting with each other. We can’t wait to see everyone in 2023,” said Linda Hyman, Director of Education.
The MBL offered one brand new course this year—Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals: Hazards and Opportunities (ECHO)—and welcomed the first ever Building Innovation through Diversity (BID) cohort to campus.
The 2023 course schedule will be announced later this fall.
