The Star Point Society takes its name from the remarkable rock formation crowning the shoreline site of the MDI Biological Laboratory campus. This enduring star-shaped landmark has served as a navigation point since this area was first inhabited, and symbolizes the role of Star Point Society members in ensuring the MDI Biological Laboratory has a solid financial foundation to support its innovative research and educational goals.
Star Point Society members provide critical start-up funding to young scientists exploring important insights into tissue repair and regeneration, disease, and aging.
Imagine being part of the team that discovers the effect of a drug that can dramatically speed healing and restoration of function after a heart attack.
Or being a critical partner to a lab group learning how to delay the onset of a debilitating disease.
Star Point Society members are key to making these possibilities a reality.
The MDI Biological Laboratory appreciates the valuable support of Star Point Society members and offers them the unique opportunity to interact with our scientific community and experience the thrill of research first-hand. Please see our full list of Star Point Society events.
