Program Overview

Program Description:
Marine organisms have long been important models in biomedical research, while marine processes exert massive influence on the Earth’s climate and the pattern of biogeochemical cycling. The world’s oceans are vital sources of food, but are also the ultimate destination of a large proportion of our waste products. Coupled with our innate fascination with the sea and its creatures, marine biology is thus a compelling subject for study.
