Welcome to The Well, a platform for conveying news directly from the Marine Biological Laboratory’s vibrant community of scientists, students, fellows, faculty, alumni, and partners in scientific discovery.

The Well is both a directory of social-media sites within the greater MBL community, and a “water cooler” where multimedia news about MBL life and science from these sources is shared.

MBL Communications developed The Well as a pilot partner in PressForward, a project for research and development of new digital methods to facilitate scientific and scholarly communication. Funded by the Sloan Foundation, the PressForward project is headquartered at George Mason University’s Center for History and New Media.
