The Marine Biochemical Sciences group is an important and unique component of NIST’s strategic plan as its mission is at the interface between Chemistry and Biology. The MBS marine mandate plays a crucial role in the Hollings Marine Laboratory partnership with NOAA, MUSC, CofC and SCDNR, as it provides the partners with measurement science solutions for an assortment of marine-related projects such as developments in marine biomedicine applications and precision medicine (another NIST strategic goal), environmental issues related to climate change, and temporal studies of marine organism health through application of current or new analytical and biochemical techniques. Additionally, certain projects are aimed to define cellular and biomolecular measurements that will enhance genetic and evolutionary studies, food web studies and integrated exposome studies.
