If humans lose their reproductive cells (i.e eggs and sperm) they become infertile. In contrast, some animals regenerate their reproductive cells and reproductive organs. MBL Hibbitt Fellow B. Duygu Özpolat recently received a grant to uncover the mechanisms of reproductive cell and tissue regeneration by identifying the cell types and genes involved in this process.
This study, co-authored by MBL’s Anne Giblin, was partly conducted at the Arctic Long-Term Ecological Research site in Toolik Lake, Alaska: 🚨New Paper Alert!🚨 Did temperatures warm or cool throughout the #Holocene? Climate models and proxy data disagree. I’m excited to share our take from Arctic Alaska with @BrownGeoSci @Brown_EnvSoc @CIRESnews @MBLScience https://t.co/aSh5NMwI8J — William
Recent research from MBL scientist Jennifer Morgan‘s lab is highlighted in this blog post at the journal eNeuro. Morgan studies the mechanisms that underlie Parkinson’s disease and several other neurodegenerative disorders, using the lamprey as a research model organism. Morgan also directs the MBL’s Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering. By Rosalind

More carbon is stored in the forests, peatlands, and lakes of the high northern (boreal) latitudes than is currently in the atmosphere. Therefore, understanding how the boreal latitudes, which include Canada and Alaska, respond to global warming is vital for predicting its trajectory. As
Whitman Center Scientists Katharine Criswell and Andrew Gillis of the University of Cambridge, U.K., co-authored a new paper in the Journal eLife. Many people don’t realize that the major components of the backbone (for example, the centra, which make up the core of the backbone) have evolved independently many, many times within vertebrate animals. A
The Microbiome Center, a joint initiative of the MBL, the University of Chicago, and Argonne National Laboratory, has announced the successful applicants for what it’s calling “Pilot Projects, 2.0.” The Center sought proposals linking the study of microbes with any aspect of global change. The focus of the grants is to “fund exploratory projects difficult
