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.

Individual support is an important 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. More than 55 Nobel laureates have had a significant association with the MBL since its founding.

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.


Other Ways to Give:

Annual Giving | Memorial and Tribute Gifts | Naming Opportunities | Planned Giving

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
