NOAA Hollings Marine Laboratory


Chloe Vander Molen


The Hollings Marine Laboratory is the product of a long-term joint project agreement between the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, National Institute of Standards and Technology, SC Department of Natural Resources, College of Charleston, and the Medical University of South Carolina. This unique partnership allows basic, applied and biomedical research expertise to provide support and biotechnology applications to sustain, protect and restore coastal ecosystems, emphasizing linkages between environmental and human health. The Hollings Marine Laboratory brings researchers together to work collaboratively on factors that affect the health of coastal waters and humans who live in or visit the coastal zone.
