Two students recently posted eloquent testimonies of their experience in the MBL Embryology course on The Node. Excerpted below is Paul Gerald Layague Sanchez’s post. See also “Five Wonders of the Embryology Course 2018” by Martyna Lukoseviciute. By Paul Gerald Layague Sanchez There is grandeur in this view of life, with its several powers, having
Last year, the University of Chicago piloted three undergraduate “September Courses” at the MBL, an intensive and successful experiment described in this article in the university’s publication, “The Core.” The courses (Microbiomes Across Environments; Observing Proteins in Action: How to Design and Build Your Own Instruments; and Biodiversity and Genomics: Exploring the Marine Animal Diversity

An odd-looking relative of the shark, the little skate, is emerging as an important genetic system for illuminating the evolution and development of vertebrates, including us.
An 8-minute video about MBL Senior Scientist Roger Hanlon‘s research has won one of the most prestigious awards in journalism, an Edward R. Murrow Award for Feature Reporting. “In the Deep,” produced by Erik Olsen of Quartz, follows Hanlon from Woods Hole to the South Pacific as he tests a custom, underwater camera that sees the

Two undergraduate reseachers at MBL this summer, Lili Rangel-Parra of Appalacian State University and William Ramos of University of Chicago, and graduate student researcher Loranzie Rogers of University of Minnesota, Duluth, are profiled in The Falmouth Enterprise. By Emily Rogers Every summer, students come to the Marine Biological Laboratory and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution to
.entry-media .entry-header Travis McCready, President and CEO of the Massachusetts Life Sciences Center (MLSC), testifies to the value of the MBL, including as a major site for convergent innovation in imaging technologies. By Travis McCready After a (not so) brief hiatus, I am back! Much has transpired since my last post, not the least of
Note: Andrew J. Latimer, a former MBL research scientist in the lab of Jonathan Gitlin, Emeritus Senior Scientist in the MBL’s Bell Center, created zebrafish models of human genetic disease for this newly published study. The models permitted Vishal Gohil and his lab to test the efficacy of specific compounds to correct a disorder of

How do you keep a live organism from creating a blur of movement or even escaping the microscope’s field of view, without perturbing the very biological process you want to study? Dirk Albrecht of Worcester Polytechnic Institute and Erik Edsinger of MBL publish a solution in Nature Communications Biology.
The first fruit of the Convening Science: Discovery at the Marine Biological Laboratory book series, published by University of Chicago Press, was toasted in a recent author’s talk held at the MBLWHOI Library. “Visions of Cell Biology” is a volume of scientific, historical, and philosophical essays on a field of research that has been intimately
