The MDI Biological Laboratory will host a community meeting entitled “What’s in Your Drinking Water?” to educate the public about dangers of arsenic in their drinking water. The meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 18, from 5 to 6:30 p.m. at the laboratory’s Center for Science Entrepreneurship on its Bar Harbor campus.
The MDI Biological Laboratory’s “REGEN 2017” course in Comparative Regenerative Biology will explore why some animals are able to regenerate the form and function of almost any body part and look at the similarities and differences in the genetic circuits for regeneration in these animals, the extent to which humans share these genetic circuits and how we can manipulate these circuits in humans to trigger regeneration of lost or damaged tissues and organs.
The MDI Biological Laboratory inaugurates its Center for Science Entrepreneurship this week with a new course that will help University of Maine and College of the Atlantic science and engineering undergraduates explore approaches to biomedical research using concepts and tools that promote collaboration across disciplines.
Only a year and a half ago, Heath Fuqua was living in a truck fitted out as a camper and trying to figure out what he was going to do with the rest of his life after eight years in the army, much of it spent in the Middle East. Today, he’s on track to become a research physician specializing in the neuroscience of aging.
The MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, held a groundbreaking ceremony today for a new 6,560-square-foot training laboratory that will double the laboratory’s capacity to provide hands-on training for students and teachers in biomedical research each year.
Children of all ages and their families will have an opportunity to experience science in a way that stimulates children’s interest and encourages parental involvement in science education at the MDI Biological Laboratory’s annual Family Science Night on Thursday, July 14, 2016, from 5 to 7 p.m.
The MDI Biological Laboratory will offer three lectures for the public on the science of aging as part of its new signature course on aging. The presenters, all leaders in the field of aging research, will address tantalizing questions such as why do we age, what mechanisms regulate aging on a cellular level and can youthfulness be extended through genetic manipulation?
Why do we age? What are the mechanisms that regulate aging on a cellular level? Is it possible to extend youthfulness through genetic manipulation? These are some of the tantalizing questions that will be the subject of a new signature course at the MDI Biological Laboratory, in Bar Harbor, Maine, that will address fundamental issues related to aging.
Science professionals, doctoral and postdoctoral students from across the country will gather May 20 through 27 at the MDI Biological Laboratory in Bar Harbor, Maine, for an intensive one-week course in Quantitative Fluorescence Microscopy. The goal of the course is to provide participants with the knowledge and expertise to implement cutting-edge microscopic methods in their laboratory research.
