Breakthroughs don’t usually come in a “Eureka!” moment. Rather, they typically represent the result of years of dedication, perseverance and hard work. We celebrate the MDI Biological Laboratory’s contributions to the biomedical sciences in our redesigned biannual news magazine, Breaking Through, whose goal is to keep donors, friends and alumni informed of the incremental achievements that are contributing to a revolution in human health and well being.
Our scientists are pioneering new approaches to regenerative medicine focused on drugs that activate our natural ability to heal, and that slow age-related degenerative changes. Our unique approach has identified drugs with the potential to treat major diseases, demonstrating that regeneration could be as simple as taking a pill. As innovators and entrepreneurs, we also teach what we know. Our Maine Center for Biomedical Innovation prepares students for 21st century careers and equips entrepreneurs with the skills and resources to turn great ideas into successful products.
Breaking Through introduces the new ideas and remarkable people that have made the MDI Biological Laboratory a world leader in regenerative medicine research and a catalyst for the transition to a modern Maine economy based on knowledge and innovation.
