In 2006, FAU opened the FAU/Harbor Branch Marine Sciences Building in Fort Pierce, Fla.—a 40,000-square-foot, joint-use facility housing specially equipped marine science labs, classrooms and video-conferencing equipped meeting rooms, yet another symbol of the extensive partnership FAU enjoyed with the the esteemed Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institution. The building offered students with undergraduate and graduate degree opportunities, with classes offered in marine biology, marine science, marine biotechnology, natural resources and environmental education. It was also the home of the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies while the organization's permanent Treasure Coast facility was built.
In 2008, FAU brought Harbor Branch under the umbrella of FAU as a research institute capping a more-than-10-year partnership in marine science research and education. Find out more about the Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute.
