Historic ties lead to historic affiliation
The MBL traces some of its deepest roots to the University of Chicago. Early UChicago faculty led the laboratory during its first four decades, creating a blueprint for the MBL that still exists today. The MBL and the University formalized their relationship with an official affiliation in 2013. The goal: to strengthen both institutions’ missions of leadership and innovation in scientific research and education.
To that end, your support of MBL and its affiliation with UChicago will leverage the complementary resources, strengths, and research interests of both institutions and help recruit and retain the best faculty, graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers; enhance MBL’s research, housing, and support facilities; create innovative training and residency programs for students; and provide the resources needed to support immediate and emerging priorities.
