Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative
The Gulf of Mexico Research Initiative (GoMRI) was a ten-year, $500 million research program to investigate the impacts of oil, dispersed oil, and dispersants on the ecosystems of the Gulf of Mexico following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill. GoMRI funded scientists sought to improve the fundamental understanding of the dynamics of such events, their environmental stressors, and the implications to public health, with the goal of improving society’s ability to understand, respond to, and mitigate the impacts of petroleum pollution and related stressors on marine and coastal ecosystems. The GoMRI ran from 2010 to 2020, involved nearly 4,500 researchers, and resulted in more than 1,700 scientific publications.
