Marine Biological Laboratory Partnership
The partnership between Brown University and the Marine Biological Laboratory at Woods Hole increases the educational and research capacity of both institutions. The MBL is one of the most distinguished biological research laboratories in the world and will bring outstanding research opportunities to the Brown community. A Brown/MBL joint graduate program was launched in 2003 and its first class matriculated in the Fall of 2004. Other features of the partnership include joint faculty appointments, MBL faculty teaching Brown courses at Brown, and at MBL and graduate training grants.
