VIMS Centers, Labs, & Programs

VIMS has established a variety of research centers, programs, laboratory groups, and partnerships to address immediate and long-term issues in marine science. All share the common goals of providing superior research capabilities in marine and coastal sciences in collaboration with industry and governmental agencies. They support graduate student education and enhance rapid technology transfer from the Institute to commercial groups, coastal managers, and decision makers within Virginia and beyond.
