Applied Marine Biology & Biotechnology

Harness Novel and Diverse Marine Biological Resources for Innovation

UC San Diego Scripps Institution of Oceanography (Scripps) is one of the oldest, largest, and most important centers for global ocean and earth science research and education in the world. The scope of the institution has grown in recent years to include biological, physical, chemical, geological, geophysical, and atmospheric studies of the earth as a system. Scripps is a community of over 2,200 students, scientists, staff, and volunteers, conducting research in every ocean and continent, and an active research program generating over 700 publications and over $148 Million US in sponsored research each year.

As a relatively unexplored habitat teeming with life the oceans provide boundless opportunities to search for industry-relevant innovation. Scientists at Scripps have been exploring the oceans for over 100 years and are uniquely poised to access immense genetic diversity and biological inspiration from unexplored areas of the seas.
