Based at the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB), the BIOMAR marine biology lab carries out its research on the bioecology of marine benthic invertebrates, with a special focus on echinoderms. Our expertise with this phylum dates back to 1969, when Prof. Michel Jangoux was first recruited under the direction of Prof. Jean Bouillon, a cnidarian specialist.
Since 1989, BIOMAR is closely associated to the marine biology laboratory of the Mons University (UMH), as both were under the supervision of Prof. Jangoux, forming the “Centre Interuniversitaire de Biologie Marine” (CIBIM).
BIOMAR is now under the direction of Prof. Philippe Dubois.
