MDI Biological Laboratory scientist Voot P. Yin, Ph.D., is quoted in this article on the role of bioelectric current in regeneration. Tufts University scientists were able to induce a flatworm to regrow a head instead of a tail by altering the electrical activity of the animal’s cells.
A scientist thinks your body can regrow that muscle, and he’s working on a way to do it.
The artists were selected by exhibit curator and artist-in-residence program coordinator, Annette Carvajal, founder of the Mount Desert Island-based group Art in Public Spaces, for their interest in the intersections between art and science.
“Maine is seeking to transition to a modern knowledge and information-based economy to create new, high-paying jobs in science and technology. Monoclonals Inc. is an example of just the kind of biomedical startup that will help build a 21st-century economy.”
The MDI Biological Laboratory has named four Maine artists whose work will be the subject of the laboratory’s 6th annual Art Meets Science exhibit. The exhibit will go on display at the laboratory’s new Maine Center for Biomedical Innovation summer 2017.
The work of MDI Biological Laboratory scientist James A. Coffman, Ph.D., on how chronic stress experienced during early development epigenetically programs adult disease risk was featured in a live webinar on April 13 sponsored by Neurology Central, an online publication based in the UK.
Monoclonals Inc. makes novel monoclonal antibodies for use in the diagnosis of viral diseases. Monoclonal antibodies enable the development of rapid test kits that allow physicians to quickly diagnosis these diseases.
The Mount Desert Islander’s Liz Graves interviews University of Maine and College of the Atlantic biology, chemistry and engineering undergraduates about their experience in a new course at the MDI Biological Laboratory entitled “Bridging Disciplines: Navigating 21st Century Careers in Biomedical Science.”
