Woods Hole Marine Biology Lab

After searching for the Woods Hole Marine Biology Lab, I was surprised to find that it dates back to 1888. According to the WHMBL website, the Lab is defined as the following:

"The Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) is an international center for research, education, and training in biology. The oldest private marine laboratory in the country, the MBL currently supports a year-round staff of more than 275 scientists and support staff working in such fields as cell and developmental biology, ecology, microbiology, molecular evolution, global infectious disease, neurobiology, and sensory physiology." (http://www.mbl.edu/about/details/index.html)

An interesting fact about this particular lab is that is it offers educational, research and service programs. The Lab is located in Woods Hole, Massachusetts. For more information about the WHMBL, visit the website at (http://www.mbl.edu).
