Supporting MBL Science

There is no other place in the world like the Marine Biological Laboratory. An environment of discovery without equal, the MBL is a nexus where scientists meet and begin work that has a global reach.

Your support is an essential part of what makes the MBL unique, building and sustaining world-renowned research and education programs. The MBL’s role as an innovator in the biological sciences is legendary. Fifty-eight Nobel laureates have had a significant association with the MBL.

MBL Discovery Fund

DISCOVER THE MBL! The Discovery Fund supports all research and education at the MBL, strengthening every aspect of our mission. It provides tuition support, course materials, and laboratory supplies for the many students and faculty participating in MBL courses each year. The Discovery Fund supports the MBL’s resident research centers, Whitman scientists, and a wide range of Fellowships—supplementing grants, investments, and other funding sources.

The MBL is an affiliate of the University of Chicago. Gifts to the MBL will always be used for MBL projects, and will be counted as part of UChicago’s $4.5 Billion Inquiry & Impact Campaign
