In 2018, the National Science Foundation (NSF) program “Understanding the Rules of Life: Building a Synthetic Cell” held an Ideas Lab to generate projects to develop synthetic cells. MBL Fellow Jane Maienschein attended. She became part of a team whose goal is to develop artificial cytoskeletons to place in living cells. In other words, the
Daniel Obrist of University of Massachusetts, Lowell and Inke Forbrich of MBL have received a collaborative grant from the National Science Foundation (NSF) to determine the origin and fate of mercury in a salt marsh ecosystem. The study will be conducted on the northeastern Massachusetts coast at the NSF’s Plum Island Ecosystems Long-Term Ecological Research
The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation’s Symbiosis in Aquatic Systems Initiative is investing $19 million over the next three years to support 42 teams of scientists, including four teams with MBL researchers, to collaboratively develop tools and methods to advance model systems in aquatic symbiosis. The Initiative’s funding aims to equip the scientific community with
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
