Vicki P. Losick, Ph.D., of the MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, has been recognized as an “outstanding investigator” by the National Institute of General Medical Sciences, an institute of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), for her research on wound healing.
Scientists at the MDI Biological Laboratory and Novo Biosciences have identified a drug candidate to restore heart muscle function following a heart attack. Their research on the role of MSI-1436 in regenerating heart muscle tissue in zebrafish and mice was described in a paper in the peer-reviewed journal, npj Regenerative Medicine.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has announced that it will grant a patent to MDI Biological Laboratory scientists Voot P. Yin, Ph.D., and Kevin Strange, Ph.D., and their collaborator Michael Zasloff, M.D., Ph.D., for use of the small molecule MSI-1436 to stimulate the repair and regeneration of heart tissue damaged by injuries such as a heart attack.
MDI Biological Laboratory scientist Vicki P. Losick, Ph.D., has identified a new mechanism for wound healing that has wide-ranging therapeutic potential for the treatment of injury, disease and even aging.
New MDI Biological Laboratory faculty member Vicki Losick, Ph.D., is leading a research team focused on understanding how damaged cells repair themselves and how the ability to heal declines as we age.
A team of scientists that includes senior staff scientist Ben King and visiting faculty members at the MDI Biological Laboratory has identified the genes and regulatory networks that enable organisms to alter themselves physically in response to changes in their environment.
