Marine Program Boston University

The marine science teaching and research program was relocated from a remote site to a 1980’s biosciences building on Boston University’s main Charles River Campus. The 7,500 SF renovation supports the BUMP program and its unique heavy use of fresh sea water; a truly ‘wet’ lab environment while also using the delicate instrumentation of a dry lab. With no source for actual sea water in the new location, the design includes a salt water ‘Life Support System’ to provide filtered and tempered artificial sea water for a variety of teaching and research goals. Included in the BUMP program is a 24-student wet/dry teaching lab and research laboratories that support PCR sequencing / DNA extraction, electrophysiology, acoustics, electrochemical communication studies, and aquatic animal housing.
