Brown and MBL create an alliance for teaching and research

ate and undergraduate levels.

Graduate student recruitment will begin this fall, with the first students expected to enter the program in fall 2004. Brown faculty and MBL colleagues are already discussing joint courses and will likely offer them beginning early in 2004.

With strong support from both institutions, scientists at Brown and MBL will be expected to initiate joint research projects, particularly multi-investigator, multidisciplinary projects that will draw on the enhanced research profile of the two institutions working together.

"This match is perfect," said Mark Bertness, professor of biology and an architect of the graduate program. "At Brown, for example, we have excellent evolutionary biologists, while MBL has the world's best phylogenetics program. Brown has expertise in community ecology and MBL has the world's best ecosystems science group. We're complementary."

The Brown/MBL affiliation will provide many benefits to both institutions, said Jerry M. Melillo, co-director and senior scientist at the MBL Ecosystems Center.

"Young scholars will do cutting-edge research on a variety of topics in basic biology, biomedicine and environmental science," said Melillo, who led MBL's team in developing the partnership. "Graduate students will have access to an expanded set of research facilities and a network of field research sites that spans the globe."

Students working in the environmental sciences, for example, will have the chance to learn and use a rich set of research tools that range from isotopic techniques and molecular markers to mathematical modeling. "With these tools they can address issues important to our nation and the world such as the long-term societal consequences of ecosystem degradation resulting from intensive human use and the potential ecological effects of climate change," Melillo said.

In fact, affiliation with MBL is a cornerstone of Brown's new Environmental Change Initia
