Fellowship students are valued members of our research and education community. Students participate in supervised and independent research projects under laboratory mentors as well as numerous experiential learning programs.

Graduate and Post Graduate

The MDI Biological Laboratory has a long and distinguished history of graduate and postgraduate education. Ph.D. students pursue their thesis research in faculty laboratories as part of the University of Maine Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering (GSBSE).

Graduate students and postdoctoral fellows are invited to apply to course and conference offerings.

Graduate students from all over the world also work collaboratively with resident and visiting faculty mentors. Visiting graduate students may apply for support through the David W. Towle Summer Fellowship program.

Postdoctoral scientists are an integral part of the MDI Biological Laboratory research and education community. Postdocs work in all the laboratories of our resident faculty. In addition to laboratory research, graduate students and postdoctoral fellows at the MDI Biological Laboratory can explore many science-oriented careers through development workshops and one-on-one interactions with visitors from industry, education, government, journalism, and the legal profession.

Undergraduate Summer Research Fellowships

Two undergraduate summer fellowship programs, INBRE and REU, run in conjunction and support students working in the laboratories of resident or visiting scientists on hands-on research projects. During the 10-week residential mentored research experiences, students also receive other educational opportunities, including an extensive scientific seminar program, professional development workshops, and dedicated residential life programs.

NSF Research Experiences for Undergraduates (REU) Fellowship Program

The MDI Biological Laboratory’s REU program aims to engage students in scientific explorations in the Laboratory’s research focus area, Comparative Regenerative Biology and Aging, while providing them with opportunities to build skills important to successful careers in the biological sciences. Research opportunities focus on uncovering basic cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying regenerative and aging processes in various animal model systems, including zebrafish, African turquoise killifish, nematodes and axolotls. Students will have access to state-of-the-art research laboratories and core facilities, support staff, and our inspirational coastal setting. Students will join in MDI Biological Laboratory’s active scientific community, which includes other undergraduate research fellows, visiting scientists, graduate students, and post-docs as well as research assistants.
