    The Marine Science Center (MSC), is the marine research and educational facility of Northeastern University. Located on the peninsula at historic East Point in Nahant, Massachusetts, the MSC juts into the ocean just five miles NNE of the entrance to Boston Harbor. The Marine Science Center offers a pristine New England rocky shore habitat in close proximity to Boston. The vision of the MSC consists of three principal components representing three interconnected goals: RESEARCH - the MSC is an internationally recognized research institution that focuses on: The ocean environment Marine life and its diversity Ecology, and Discovering biotechnological and medical potentials in the sea We invite scientists from around the world to spend varying periods of time conducting research at the Marine Science Center. HIGHER EDUCATION - the MSC is a first class teaching laboratory -- a center for undergraduate and graduate education where the theory of marine sciences is as close to its practice as the sea to the station's front door. OUTREACH - the MSC is a learning center with outreach activities for students and the general public. Our outreach efforts enhance the knowledge and awareness of the ocean's potential for scientific discovery and medical advances, while providing opportunity for people to get involved in activities that benefit the marine environment.
