University of Florida's Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience sits
between the Atlantic Ocean and an estuarine system, offering extreme
levels of biodiversity for biomedical research.
From memory to hearing studies, the University of Florida's Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience performs research that impacts the care U.S. citizens will receive every day. But after sequestration, revenue streams are drying up, labs are looking for ways to work with their communities. Outreach is a path to local support and a higher profile for federal dollars. As a bonus, people are learning more about science.
