In this post, MDI Biological Laboratory animal core technician Karlee Markovich talks about her experience inspiring interest in science among students at a Bangor middle school as part of Maine BioScience Day.
In this post, MDI Biological Laboratory scientist James Godwin, Ph.D., talks about what inspired him to study regenerative biology. The profile appears in the fall edition of the MDI Biological Laboratory magazine, "Breaking Through," which focuses on how the study of highly regenerative animal models can help science understand the potential for regeneration in humans.
Jane E. Disney, Ph.D., MDI Biological Laboratory senior staff scientist and director of education, and Anna Farrell, program coordinator for the institution's Community Environmental Health Laboratory, were interviewed for the investigative documentary, "Troubled Water," on environmental threats to the nation's water supply.
In this post, artist and scientist Andrea R. Tilden, Ph.D., a visiting professor at the MDI Biological Laboratory, talks about the process involved in creating her Etch A Sketch® art, which is now on display in the Kinne Library in the lobby of the Morris Building.

In this excerpt from an article in Colby Magazine by Kate Carlisle, genomics expert Andrea R. Tilden, Ph.D., The J. Warren Merrill Associate Professor of Biology at Colby and a visiting scientist in bioinformatics at the MDI Biological Laboratory, discusses the evolution of the fields of bioinformatics and computational biology.
The following interview with Kevin Strange, Ph.D., president of the MDI Biological Laboratory, is excerpted from Eureka, a blog serving the CRO (contract research organization) industry. Launched by Charles River Labs in 2012, the site is a way for scientists to connect and share big ideas on the cutting-edge bench science driving drug discovery and development, particularly in the areas of preclinical safety and assessment, pharmaceutical manufacturing and animal research models.
