Shaw Institute

The Shaw Institute is a nonprofit scientific research organization based in Maine and New York City. Founded in 1990 by environmental health scientist Dr. Susan Shaw, its mission is to discover and expose environmental threats to people and wildlife through innovative science and to engage in strategic partnerships to improve human and ecological health. Over three decades, the Institute’s pioneering research on ocean pollution, sentinel species, plastics, flame retardants, and climate change has fueled public policy nationally and internationally.
