For the lamprey, it turns out that swimming sucks.
Most fish swim by creating backward thrust, their tails pushing against the water. Last year, an MBL Whitman Center team made the surprising discovery that lamprey and jellyfish propulsion is just the opposite …
MBL’s Julie Huber narrates video highlights from the spectacular second week of Schmidt Ocean Institute’s exploration of undersea volcanoes in the Mariana Back-Arc, a geologic basin in the Western Pacific Ocean that is home to some of the deepest known spots on the planet.
It’s an intensely creative time, each June, July and August, when the MBL’s five neuroscience courses are running full tilt and their research agendas seem limited only by the human need to sleep. If any environment can propel us toward a deep understanding of how the brain works, it’s this one, claim Rae Nishi and
The Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History has completed a four-year project to curate and integrate the invertebrate specimens in the George M. Gray Museum Collection, which was developed at the Marine Biological Laboratory in the 1960s and transferred to Yale in 1994.

In a new paper published in Nature Communications , Jennifer Bowen and Patrick Kearns of Northeastern University, along with researchers at the Marine Biological Laboratory and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, set out to discover what would happen to microbes in salt marshes if specific nutrients were added to the environment.
Nineteen scientists affiliated with the MBL are among the 84 Faculty Scholars recently announced by The Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), the Simons Foundation, and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
