The Department of Marine Biology and Ecology consists of 27 faculty working on the ecology of coral reefs and other marine and estuarine systems, and on the population dynamics, ecology, genomics, physiology, toxicology, neurophysiology, immunology and diseases of marine fish and invertebrates (https://marine-biology-ecology.earth.miami.edu/index.html). Our research spans from the theoretical to the applied and is particularly relevant to human health, marine resource management and human impacts on marine ecosystems. Faculty collaborate with the Institute for Data Science and Computing at UM which includes one of the top academic supercomputing facilities in the US, and the Aircraft Center for Earth Studies (ACES) which focuses on science-driven sensing and technology development to help better understand our changing planet. The Department has an active PhD, MS and MPS program and a large undergraduate program.
The Department of Marine Biology and Ecology recognizes that good science and innovation need different approaches and points of view that can only be achieved through diversity.
