Centers, Labs, and Projects

Azam Lab
Studies the ecology of marine microbes, their diversity, and their population dynamics.
Barbeau Laboratory: Marine Trace Metal Biogeochemistry
Focuses on the biogeochemical cycling of trace metals in marine systems.
Burton Lab
We take advantage of molecular genetic approaches to examine diverse questions in ecology and evolution.
Center for Aerosol Impacts on Climate and the Environment (CAICE)
CAICE is a Center for Chemical Innovation focused on the fundamental chemistry behind the impact of aerosol particles on our climate.
Center for Marine Biotechnology and Biomedicine (CMBB)
Research programs focus on marine biomedicine and marine drug discovery, with an emphasis on cancer and both infectious and inflammatory diseases.
Laboratory for Computational Genomics
Aims to create and use new software tools to explore the unfolding world of genomes.
Gerwick Laboratory
Multidisciplinary marine biomedical research.
Latz Laboratory
A marine biology laboratory that studies the role of bioluminescence in marine ecosystems.
Moore Laboratory
Focused on the biosynthesis and bioengineering of marine microbial natural products and in the discovery of new enzyme biocatalysts.
A.E. Allen Lab
Research at the intersection of biological and microbial oceanography and functional genomics.
Bartlett Lab
We examine the diversity and activity of microbial life in the deep sea , including within the deepest ocean trenches.
Bowman Lab
We use sequence-based approaches, flow cytometry, modeling, and other techniques to explore the structure and function of microbial communities.
Diaz Lab
Broadly, our goal is to understand how interactions between the geochemistry and microbiology of the ocean shape the natural world, including global climate and natural resources.
