. The Biological bulletin. Biology; Zoology; Biology; Marine Biology. Report of the Director and Chief Executive Officer The Marine Biological Laboratory remains a remarkable place as we approach the end of the 20th Century. At every turn there are feelings of pride and satisfaction, of excitement, curiosity, determination and anticipation of things to be discovered. These feelings are shared by both resident and visiting scientists and by students for whom time spent at MBL is an experience never to be matched. That spirit of scientific adventure and achievement is alive and thriving here, as it has been for more than a century. The MBL continues to build on its solid history, to add programs in research and education, to recruit new scientists and to raise funds for vital improvements to this place that is like no other. After establishing research and education priorities, we were able to define funding requirements and a timeframe enabling us in August of 1997 to launch Discovery: The Campaign for Science at the Marine Biological Laboratory. The goal is to reach $25 million by December 31, 2000. We are gratified by the response to this fundraising effort and are grateful to many of you who have already made generous contributions to this Campaign. I'm pleased to say that, by the end of 1998, we had raised $20.6 million, which is good news indeed.

We were able to award more than $600,000 in scholarship support for those students, making it possible for the best and the brightest to continue to come to the MBL. Even as we grow, we have retained the high quality, intensive courses that have long set the MBL apart from other educational institutions.
