Our mission
is to become a world-class marine biotechnology research institute,
built on the rich heritage of Gloucester's maritime history,
catalyzing a biotechnology hub that will sustain Gloucester and the Cape Ann
economy for the 21st century and beyond.

History

The origin can be traced to conversations in 2007 among Gloucester neighbors, deeply concerned about the weight of the struggling fishing industry on the local economy.

In time, with a mission crystallized and objectives clearly defined, Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute (GMGI) was founded in 2013 by three entrepreneurial scientists with legendary experience in the sciences of genomics and proteomics – Greg Verdine, Marc Vidal and David Walt – along with a prominent Gloucester businesswoman – Sheree Zizik.

Taken together, the founders have a unique chemistry of experiences in science and commerce. This has enabled GMGI to accomplish a great deal in a short period of time and to attract a growing group of people with complementary skill sets, all equally committed to the mission.
