A clear path

All paths are clear leading to the Stanley W. Watson Laboratory following a February 2010 snowfall. The 35,570-square-foot facility —located on the WHOI Quissett campus— opened its doors in 2005,  providing new offices and labs for more than 90 employees. The building was named after microbiologist Stanley Watson, who died in 1995 following a 35-year career at WHOI. He was instrumental in uncovering the importance of bacteria in ocean food webs and in the nitrogen cycle. (Photo by Alexander Dorsk, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
