About Us

Our mission is to become a world-class marine biotechnology research institute, built on the rich heritage of Gloucester's maritime history, catalyzing a biotechnology hub that will sustain Gloucester and the Cape Ann economy for the 21st century and beyond.

Gloucester Marine Genomics Institute (GMGI) was launched in 2013 in the belief that the ocean represents a new source of opportunity. As a not-for-profit whose ambitious mission is “to conduct world-class marine biotechnology research which expands the regional economy,” GMGI is demonstrating that there is vast potential in marine science discovery powered by genomics.

Gloucester, a 400-year-old port, offers the ideal location and maritime infrastructure for situating the world’s first dedicated marine genomics research institute. The proximity of Cape Ann to the biotechnology hub of Cambridge and Boston allows for easy northward expansion of this economic driver.
