Whitman Center Study Links Immune Response, Regeneration in Visual System

Jeff Gross spent the summers of 2018 and 2019 in the MBL Whitman Center studying regeneration in the visual system of zebrafish, work recently published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The study focuses an an ocular tissue critical for maintaining vision, the retinal pigment epithelium (RPE); death of RPE cells leads to

The Stars Align: New Imaging Technology Reveals Architecture in Dividing Starfish Cells

Seeing how the building blocks of cells align over time is important for understanding how cells are built, move, grow and divide. Recently, researchers from Japan collaborated with imaging scientists at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) to develop a new cellular probe, POLArIS, that allows real-time imaging of molecular orientations in live cells. The study,
