The Shaw Institute is a 501(C)3 nonprofit scientific research organization based in Maine and New York City. Founded in 1990 by Dr. Susan Shaw (as the Marine & Environmental Research Institute), its mission is to discover and expose environmental health threats through innovative science and engage in strategic partnerships to improve human and ecological health. Over three decades, the Institute’s pioneering research on ocean pollution, sentinel species, flame retardants, plastics, and climate change has fueled public policy nationally and internationally.

Dr. Shaw will deliver a public talk “Science, Lies and Politics” on Tuesday evening, and lecture on a range of topics, including the hazards of photochemicals, chemical exposure, plastic pollution, the legacy of the BP oil spill, and cancer in the fire service.
