Welcome to the OSU Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, Oregon.

Our mission of research, education, and outreach in marine sciences through collaborative partnerships includes professional colleagues from a variety of disciplines.

Our unique assets, including interdisciplinary, inter-agency research programs, high-quality seawater facilities, and access to the Pacific ocean and coast, allow us to offer world-class facilities and collaborative opportunities to interested researchers.

Visiting scientists engage in a variety of ways, from sabbatical and other long-term collaborative visits to presentations at our weekly research seminar, participation in workshops, and conducting experimental research using our wet and dry labs.

We encourage you to contact me to discuss collaborative research opportunities or review our webpages on research at the HMSC campus.
