The Duke University Marine Laboratory began in 1938. Its original founders, Dr. A.S. Pearse advocated for this coastal laboratory space and succeeded in securing Pivers Island in Beaufort, North Carolina for this purpose. Beginning as a summer research facility, the Marine Laboratory has grown into a year-round center for research and training of undergraduates, graduate students, scientists, and other guests from around the world.

The Marine Laboratory is a campus of Duke University, and operates within the Nicholas School of the Environment. According the Marine Laboratory's website (http://www.env.duke.edu/marinelab), approximately 3500 people visit or research the Marine Laboratory annually. The faculty focus on a diverse set of disciplines, including "oceanography, marine biology, marine biomedicine, marine biotechnology, and coastal marine policy and management."
