The Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering is named in honor of Dr. Eugene Bell (1919 – 2007), a pioneer in the field of tissue engineering and a valued member of the Marine Biological Laboratory scientific community.
In the 1980s, Dr. Bell developed a method to grow human skin that could be grafted onto wounds of burn victims and other severely injured patients without rejection. He also devised ways to grow “skin equivalents” for blood vessels or organ tissue. His research led to what is now known as regenerative medicine.
Please join us for the inaugural Bell Center Symposium where we will learn about the latest discoveries in areas including regenerative biology and tissue engineering, cell and developmental biology, neuroscience, imaging and more! Featuring a variety of model organisms, including marine and aquatic species.
Join us for a Symposium celebrating the life of Shinya Inoué and his seminal contributions to cell biology. Everyone is welcomed. The program starts off in the morning with the Physiology course lecture by Jennifer Lippincott-Schwartz and continues into the afternoon with research talks by eminent cell biologists whose research is inspired by the legacy of Shinya Inoué. Research talks are followed by short testimonials and reminiscences by students and colleagues of Shinya Inoué. The program is rounded out by a panel discussion on the need for interdisciplinary spaces for the development, access, and training on advanced microscopy methods for biology. The discussion will be preceded by lightning talks on interdisciplinary research projects pursued by young scientists, including Physiology course students.
