Scientific Vendor Partnerships

The partnership between MBL and commercial vendors is critical to the success of the advanced research training courses. Starting with four vendors in 1970, this partnership has grown to 155 vendors loaning over $24 million in equipment, software, and supplies, effectively making MBL one of the largest demo centers in the world in the summer. Through this program, our students, faculty members, consultants, and teaching assistants are able to try scientific products in a real research context and thereby contribute significantly to future sales. We are very grateful for the support of these companies and acknowledge them by listing their names and logos below.
