A Vision of Science and Education on Cape Ann

Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute (GMGI) was launched in 2013 in the belief that the ocean represents a new source of opportunity. As a not-for-profit whose ambitious mission is “to conduct world-class marine biotechnology research which expands the regional economy,” GMGI believes that there is vast potential in marine science discovery powered by genomics.

Gloucester, a 400 year-old port, offers the ideal location and maritime infrastructure for situating the world’s first dedicated marine genomics research institute.

The proximity of Cape Ann to the biotechnology hub of Cambridge and Boston allows for easy northward expansion of this economic driver. GMGI will help catalyze a regional biotech hub through a strategy triad that includes:

I. Research Institute

GMGI is establishing a world-class marine biotechnology research facility, with programs powered by genomics. The primary focus is on research that connects with human health. We are also committed to bringing the best science to fishery research.

II. Education/Academy

GMGI is creating a vibrant science learning environment at the facility in Blackburn Center. The Gloucester Biotechnology Academy flagship vocational program educates high school graduates for careers as biotech lab technicians, with a lab-immersion curriculum and paid internships. The Academy will also offer science camps and educational programs for local middle and high school students.

III. Science Community

GMGI is promoting conditions that encourage development of a science hub in and around Gloucester, with science conferences and partnerships.

The GMGI vision has brought together pioneering scientists, community leaders, successful business people and committed educators --- all dedicated to this new biotech community. There is every reason to anticipate that the mission will be fully realized.
