Partner organizations participating in the symposium include The Jackson Laboratory (JAX), MDI Biological Laboratory, MaineHealth, Northern Light Health, the University of New England, the University of Southern Maine and the Roux Institute.
“This three-day gathering features scientists who live and work in Maine,” said Cecile Ferguson, a program manager at the UMaine Institute of Medicine. “It’s a great way, in a short period of time, to understand, experience and appreciate the full spectrum of advanced research that’s being conducted in our state. The new knowledge being generated through local research efforts is helping to create the jobs of the future and improve Maine citizens’ quality of life.”
Sponsors for the second annual Maine Research Symposium on Biomedical Science and Engineering include the Bioscience Association of Maine (BIOME), UMaine’s Graduate School of Biomedical Science and Engineering (GSBSE), MDI Bioscience, IDEXX, the Maine Technology Institute (MTI) and SimKit.
