Date:9/21/2009

WOODS HOLE, Mass., Sept. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Senate President Therese Murray, the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI), and key state officials gathered at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) today to break ground on a $25 million renovation of the MBL's central research training facility, the Loeb Laboratory. This renovation will create 250 regional construction jobs over the next 15 months and will greatly enhance the MBL's and the state's ability to attract and retain top scientists.

The MBL is an internationally recognized biomedical and environmental research and education center in Woods Hole, and the Loeb Laboratory has been the cornerstone of the MBL's world-famous life sciences training programs since 1970. The renovation, funded by the Howard Hughes Medical Institute and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center, will transform Loeb into a state-of-the-art facility that will serve as a national resource for science training and discovery.

The renovation, which will be completed this spring, was designed by Tsoi/Kobus & Associates. Shawmut Design and Construction is overseeing the project and will completely gut the building's internal infrastructure to create a thoroughly modernized facility, bringing all of the MBL's research-training programs into the building and creating spaces designed for each discipline.

"The tremendous support of state officials like Senate President Murray, and funders such as the HHMI and the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center are helping ensure that Massachusetts and the MBL play a vital role in American science," said MBL Director and CEO Gary Borisy. "The MBL trains over 450 scientists each y
