Summer and investing researchers.

Many visiting MBL investigators use marine organisms as models for studying basic biological processes. Research using squids, sea urchins, horseshoe crabs, dogfish, clams, toadfish, and sea slugs, for example, has increase our fundamental understanding of a broad range of diseases and medical conditions including cancer, diabetes, epilepsy, hypertension, multiple sclerosis, arthritis, and neurological disorders.

During 2002, the MBL welcomed 129 Principal Investigators and 237 other researchers from 124 institutions, representing 12 countries. Members of the summer community come from Harvard and Howard, from the University of, Alabama and the Universitat de Barcelona, from the Food and Drug Administration and the National Institutes of Health, from Canada, Argentina, England, and Switzerland, among many other institutions, universities, agencies and countries.

MSL summer researchers find an infrastructure and an informal, interactive scientific community that allows them to launch into research almost immediately upon their arrival. Advice and equipment always seem available Prom other researchers or from the summer courses. Free from academic duties at their home institutions, some veteran summer scientists report they do more hands-on research in three months at the MBL than they do during the rest of the year at their home institutions.
