MDI Science Café guest speaker, Robert McCraken Peck, shares the remarkable story of how a 19th century hair collection, saved from destruction, is providing a unique “portrait of humanity” from the 1850s.
The development of a new imaging technique by Prayag Murawala, Ph.D., of the MDI Biological Laboratory and his collaborators, however, enables unprecedented insight subcellular structures, tissues, organs and even whole organisms, and — because of its wide applicability — broadens the range of animal models that can be studied, processes that can be explored and biological questions that can be addressed.
MDI Science Café guest speaker, Ana Navas-Acien, M.D., Ph.D., will tackle the epidemiologic evidence on the association between arsenic exposure and cardiovascular disease in several populations in the United States.
In this Science Café presentation, MDI Biological Laboratory assistant professor Jarod Rollins, Ph.D., will explore connections between our diet, the proteins created by our cells, and the rate at which we age.
Research by scientists at the MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, is opening up new approaches to promote tissue regeneration in organs damaged by disease or injury.
In line with their mission to increase public engagement with science, MDI Biological Laboratory is moving programming online while restrictions on in-person gathering remain in place.
The 47th annual Maine Biological and Medical Sciences Symposium (MBMSS) took place on April 23 & 24, connecting Maine’s newest scientists with fellow students, researchers and future employers from across the state.
An MDI Biological Laboratory-led program to teach data literacy to Maine and New Hampshire students by analyzing data on arsenic in well water collected from their homes has found that 25 percent of samples exceed the New Hampshire maximum safety level of 5 parts per billion (ppb) and 15 percent exceed the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) maximum safety level of 10 ppb.
The University of New England has been selected to join the Maine IDeA Network of Biomedical Research Excellence (INBRE), a collaborative network of state educational and research institutions, lead by MDI Biological Laboratory, that strives to strengthen Maine’s capacity to conduct cutting-edge biomedical research.
