The New Wave of Marine Biology

Web update: Marine biology in the new era. The frontiers of science are by definition continually shifting. Areas once considered at the forefront of biology may be considered mainstream only a few years later. As HFSP has the support of frontier science at the core of its mission, it must be open to emerging fields. In HFSP’s programs we are seeing increasing interest from scientists studying marine organisms. What are the opportunities for the discovery of new fundamental biological processes in this vast area? Here, Gabriele Procaccini, Maurizio Ribera d'Alcala' and Roberto Di Lauro discuss recent trends and future challenges.
