Significance: MBL is significant as the nation's first and most enduring permanent marine biological research and educational institution. Its commitment to both investigation and instruction in a consciously co-operative atmosphere has furthered the fellowship and hard science of biological research for over 100 years. Its success is reflected in the accomplishments of its associates, including 35 Nobel Laureates. Instruction for both adults and children has incubated fledgling scientists and broadened understanding of science and of marine biology. MBL has also made important contributions to the local economy, community life, and architectural and visual character of Woods Hole.
