Research at UMaine

Links related to this story

At the University of Maine, biotechnology creates new products and solves problems. Applications are found throughout UMaine's research in agriculture, forestry and fisheries. UMaine engineers have developed sensors to warn of chemical and biological agents, and a foam metal implant prototype for use in reconstructive surgery. In chemistry, research using specialized molecular isolation techniques could one day identify the biomarkers of ovarian cancer in human breath. A hub of biomedical research on campus is UMaine's zebrafish facility, where the model organisms support the work of a number of UMaine scientists studying such areas as immune responses to infectious diseases, toxicology and muscle development. At UMaine, biotechnology is a key to improving Mainers' quality of life and growing the state's economy.
