Tropical Research Initiative


Ocean Life Institute

The WHOI Tropical Research Initiative (TRI) was established by a challenge gift from Honorary Trustees Lisina and Frank Hoch in March 2005.

The Initiative’s purpose is to support multi-disciplinary research and technological advances in tropical regions around the world. Funding from this initiative will support WHOI scientists and engineers who are either already working in tropical regions or who seek to develop new research programs there.
