Founded in 1888, the MBL has become one of the leading research and education facilities in the fields of biology, biomedicine, and environmental science. The scientists and support staff – about 250 individuals – are joined during the year by several hundred visiting scientists, researchers, faculty, and students. Since 1929, 56 Nobel Prize winners have been affiliated with the MBL, as well as hundreds of others recognized in various fields.
