A Formula That Works
MDI Biological Laboratory was established with the belief that removing obstacles to biomedical discovery and development leads to faster, bolder discoveries and solutions. The Institution’s expert, interdisciplinary faculty utilizes multiple genetically tractable model organisms and diverse cell systems to define mechanisms of tissue repair and regeneration and characterize changes that occur in cells and tissues with disease and aging. This approach speeds the discovery process, greatly reduces research costs, and provides opportunities for identification of new drugs for improving human health.
The Laboratory is also a world-class science education institution where out-of-the-box thinking, entrepreneurship, and partnership-building are encouraged. The Institution’s goals are to make better doctors, inspire scientists, develop a 21st-century science and technology workforce, and bring diverse stakeholders together to collaborate on solving human health and environmental sustainability problems.Learn More
Our iconic campus is a gathering place for preeminent scientists, motivated students and engaged citizens where new ideas are sparked, new knowledge is discovered, critically discussed and disseminated to the world.
The leadership of the MDI Biological Laboratory works every day to ensure our scientists and students have the support and resources they need to address the complex challenges stimulating our natural ability to repair damaged tissues and extend healthy lifespan.
Our 21st century approach is deeply rooted in a 19th century vision – to create a gathering place for scientists from around the world to engage in the power of scientific thinking and explore our connection to the natural world, creating a powerful nexus for discovery and the application of new knowledge.
