Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences in Eilat

The Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences in EilatThe Interuniversity Institute for Marine Sciences in Eilat (IUI) evolved from the H. Steinitz Marine Biology Laboratory (MBL) established by the Hebrew University in 1968. In 1985 the wide scopes and the heterogeneity of scientific disciplines at the MBL, induced the Israel Council for Higher Education (ICHU) to transform the MBL into a national facility, shared by all Universities in the country. Consequently, the IUI was established as the only interuniversity teaching and research facility in Israel, directly reporting to the Budget and Coordinating Committee (BCC) of the ICHU.

Research activities at the IUI span the whole spectrum of marine sciences, including Ecology, Chemical, Physical and Biological Oceanography, Ichthyology, Invertebrate and Vertebrate Biology, Neurobiology, Molecular Biology and Marine Biogeochemistry.
