Scientists work together toward common goals, share ideas, and build upon each other's energy and commitment. Station scientists also participate in cooperative research with universities.

Our laboratories are often based on or near campuses of major universities allowing our scientists to work in an academic environment. Some laboratories are located in small rural communities.
