Two Mt. Desert Island artists and two scientists from the MDI Biological Laboratory will talk about the similarities between art and science at the MDI Science Café at the Asticou Inn in Northeast Harbor on Monday, July 1, at 5 p.m.
Karen James, Ph.D., a scientist at the MDI Biological Laboratory who leads the “BioTrails” project linking citizen scientists with new genetic tools, will lead the first of the summer MDI Science Cafés in Northeast Harbor. “Code of the Wild: DNA Barcoding for Research and Conservation” will be held at the Asticou Inn on Monday, June 17 at 5 p.m.
“We at the MDI Biological Laboratory join with all those mourning the loss of Kathryn W. Davis,” says Kevin Strange, Ph.D., director of the Mount Desert Island Biological Laboratory. “Her great generosity, coupled with her enthusiasm for MDIBL’s mission, launched the Davis Center for Regenerative Biology and Medicine and made it possible for us to expand our research into the causes of healing and aging.”
Research at the MDI Biological Laboratory has led to the launching of a new company to investigate the therapeutic potential of drugs that speed tissue healing and stimulate regeneration of lost and damaged body parts.
