Center for Marine Biotechnology
Research at the intersection of ocean sciences and human health, emphasizing marine drug discovery, the ocean microbiome, molecular epidemiology, marine cell biology and development, and the physiology of marine mammals.
Help support our Biomedical Automation Facility
Partner with Scripps Institution of Oceanography in making our groundbreaking Biomedical Automation Facility (BAF) a reality. Once built, the BAF will harness the incomparable data harvesting of Scripps Oceanography to UC San Diego’s powerhouse engineering enterprise.
Hear directly from our students about their research and life at Scripps Oceanography
It is exciting and humbling to me that nature hosts this background of chemical interactions that are structuring what we observe in the environment and that have potential to improve the human condition.
