Mission

Develop an internationally acclaimed research centre focusing on marine science in SE Asia and the NW Pacific

Generate a research culture to train young scientists to an international standard who can play a role in the management and conservation of marine resources in the region

Provide an interdisciplinary research environment to initiate novel research ideas and applications

Foster research and education links and collaborations with other marine facilities in the SE Asian and global scientific community

To achieve these goals, our research focuses on shallow water marine ecosystems. Specifically:

ECOLOGY

&

BIODIVERSITY

To determine the responses of marine organisms to environmental conditions and the impacts of climate change.

To achieve science-based management and conservation of fisheries and marine resources and ecosystems in a sustainable manner.

CONSERVATION
&

MANAGEMENT

To ascertain the environmental impacts of multiple stressors; from ecosystem/community to cellular and genomic responses of ecologically important and commercial species.
