The MDI Biological Laboratory’s Education department trains hundreds of students each year.
Our programs emphasize hands-on training, entrepreneurship, problem solving, communication, and partnership building. Students range from high school students to practicing physicians, scientists, teachers, and members of the public from all backgrounds.
Our goal is to inspire current and developing scientists, train better doctors, develop a science and technology workforce equipped for success in the 21st century, and increase public engagement with science. We lead the federally funded INBRE program which promotes workforce training for Maine undergraduates through research-based courses and internships.
