The Maine Center for Biomedical Innovation, established in 2017 by the MDI Biological Laboratory with funding from the State of Maine, promotes the state's thriving life sciences and technology sector by facilitating innovation- and entrepreneurial-based learning and by nurturing emerging life sciences and technology companies.

The MDI Biological Laboratory is one of the nation’s oldest independent research institutions, committed to improving human health, focusing on the molecular and cellular mechanisms of tissue regeneration and aging. Designated a Center of Biomedical Excellence by the National Institutes of Health since 2013, it supports a growing faculty of investigators and invites international collaboration with students and scientists through its robust experiential, education and conference programs. 

We are committed to supporting and facilitating the translation of research into solutions to promote human health and to building Maine's life sciences sector. Our campus is located on Mount Desert Island, also home to Acadia National Park and The Jackson Laboratory, with whom we are fortunate to share opportunities for collaboration and be part of the largest concentration of biomedical research expertise in the state.
