The Whitney Laboratory for Marine Bioscience is a biomedical and biotechnology research institute of the University of Florida, located on the border of St. Johns and Flagler Counties in St. Augustine, Florida.
Cornelius Vanderbilt Whitney and UF’s Medical School leadership founded the Lab in 1974. It is composed of nine different internal labs that use marine organisms for basic biological research that can be applied to human health, natural resources and the environment.

The lab provides training for future experimental biologists, education programs for Kindergarten through university-level students and monthly lectures for the general public.Read More
