COVID-19 Update from MDI Biological Laboratory

Given the concerns and rapidly changing situation surrounding COVID-19, MDI Biological Laboratory has made the decision to cancel all public events, courses and conferences until April 30, 2020. Our top priority is the safety of our employees, supporters and community.

We are currently exploring the option of remotely hosting some events, such as our Science Café and the Maine Biological and Medical Sciences Symposium, through online platforms. We hope to have an update shortly about whether this will be possible. 

We will continue to monitor the situation and follow the advice of the CDC and other federal and state authorities, and make further decisions as necessary.
