Known originally as the University's marine laboratory, it was founded in 1943. It evolved into the Institute for Marine Science in 1961, and eight years later became the Rosenstiel School of Marine & Atmospheric Science (RSMAS) within the University of Miami. The Virginia Key campus has grown to include modern research and teaching facilities, a dedicated academic library, and an internationally recognized Marine Invertebrate Museum. RSMAS also operates a state-of-the-art 96-foot catamaran research vessel, the F.G. Walton Smith. In 2014, RSMAS added to its fleet of specialized research vessels a one-of-a-kind Helicopter Observation Platform (HOP), a flying scientific laboratory equipped with state-of-the-art technology and scientific instrumentation, which provides scientists with a unique capability to obtain vital information on environmental processes and mechanisms that affect our climate and impact human health. The newest addition to RSMAS includes a freshwater Scientific Dive Pool. It plays a critical role in providing necessary scientific diving instruction to participants in our science programs and research projects. The facility allows scientists and students to gain a deeper understanding of the marine environment and coral reefs. CSTARS (Center for Southeastern Tropical Advanced Remote Sensing), located on the Richmond campus in south Miami-Dade county was launched in 2003, and conducts research with remotely sensed data received from earth-orbiting satellite systems. This state-of-the-art real-time reception and analysis facility provides data for environmental monitoring. The predictive power concentrated on this 78-acre campus is helping to provide vital, life-saving information regarding earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoons, freak waves and other natural and manmade disasters, including monitoring of the earthquakes in Haiti and Chile, and oil spills.The Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine has been designated a Center for AIDS Research (CFAR) in Florida, and is leading the University's prestigious Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI), awarded by the NIH.
