About named building

Hubbs Hall houses the Marine Biology Research Division (MDRD) and contains some of the Institution's most sophisticated laboratory facilities. MDRD programs include a full range of biological studies, from the simple characterization of species to molecular biology and genetic analysis of fish. Hubbs Hall also contains an experimental aquarium facility and researchers from the Center for Marine Biodiversity and Conservation and the Center for Marine Genomics.
