3 Woods Hole scientific institutions forge alliance to address societal issues
Date:4/2/2009

Woods Hole, MA -- Three leading research centers based in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, announce the creation of the Woods Hole Consortium, a new alliance that will bring their combined scientific power to bear on some of the major issues facing society today and spawn scientific growth and job opportunity on the South Coast of Massachusetts.

The consortium comprises the Woods Hole Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), and Woods Hole Research Center (WHRC), and focuses on the interlocking issues of climate change and ecosystems health and human well-being.

Massachusetts officials, including Senate President Therese Murray, Senator Robert O'Leary (D-Barnstable), and Representative Timothy R. Madden (D-Nantucket) and MassDevelopment President and CEO Robert L. Culver hailed the consortium for its potential benefits to the state.

"Individually, each of these organizations is world renowned for their cutting-edge work," said Senate President Murray. "Combining their efforts will make the Woods Hole scientific community a powerhouse for research and providing solutions to the environmental issues facing the world. This consortium will add even more prestige to an already stellar reputation of cutting-edge research."

"This is a wonderful idea," said Senator O'Leary. "Collaboration is always important but in difficult financial times, it is crucial. Awareness of the importance of the marine environment and marine research is growing and to see these three very reputable institutions come together is a great show of support for marine research and the environment."

"I am pleased to see that these world-leading institutions are coming together. The cooperation and collaboration of these institutions enhances the scientific and academic resources of the Woods Hole scientific community in battling tough and timely issues, such as climate change. I look forward to working with the consorti
