The MBA research programme is recognized for its excellence and diversity, and reflects a long-standing commitment to the development of marine biology.  An overarching rationale for our programme is to understand mechanisms that underlie key marine life processes.  This includes research on model marine organisms that informs our broader knowledge of fundamental mechanisms as well as research that is specifically targetted at understanding  biogeochemical and ecological processes and their complex interactions with environmental factors, including long-term and rapid environmental change.  

Strategic aims:  

  • Elucidate the biological mechanisms that underlie the functioning of marine systems and their responses to changing environmental pressures.
  • Utilise marine models for further discovery in fundamental biology using interdisciplinary approaches, from molecules and cells, to whole organisms, communities and ecosystems.
  • Apply the knowledge gained from these fundamental studies for wider scientific progress and to promote the most sustainable use of our oceans.

The Association awards a number of bursaries each year to support Student Members and Young Marine Biologists of the Association attending marine biology related conferences and meetings.
