The Chesapeake Biological Laboratory (CBL) is a marine science laboratory on the Chesapeake Bay in Solomons, Maryland, and it is the oldest state-supported marine laboratory on the East Coast of the U.S. It was founded in 1925 in a small waterman's shack by Dr. Reginald V. Truitt and is part of the University of Maryland Center for Environmental Science.
Today, CBL has 28 faculty members, 7 visiting PhD-level scientists, 22 students, 29 research technicians and 33 staff. The CBL campus includes 21 buildings, that include purpose built research facilities with running sea water and environmentally-controlled chambers. The lab also has a diverse array of instrumentation that allow its scientists to make measurements of biogeochemical constituents.
