Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering

Woods Hole, Massachusetts - United States

The MBL is uniquely positioned to move this biomedical research goal forward in the new Eugene Bell Center for Regenerative Biology and Tissue Engineering. The Bell Center was made possible by transformative leadership gifts, including $8 million from Millicent Bell, and $5 million from John W. and Valerie Rowe. It is a key element of the Catalyst Campaign to raise $125M in support for research and education at the MBL. MBL researchers have studied regeneration in marine and other animals for more than a century, building expertise that will flourish and grow in the Bell Center. A cornerstone of the Bell Center is a new, national resource for research on the frog, Xenopus, which possesses unique regenerative abilities and is a major animal model used in U.S. biomedical research. The National Xenopus Resource at the MBL is funded by the National Institutes of Health. The Bell Center is also part of the Brown University/Marine Biological Laboratory Partnership, which includes a joint Graduate Program in Biological and Environmental Sciences. Faculty in the Bell Center may receive a joint appointment at Brown through the Brown-MBL Partnership, and may also receive a joint appointment at the Harvard University Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology.

The National Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology (BIOTEC) was first set up under the Ministry of Science, Technology and Energy on 20 September 1983. After the establishment of the National Science and Technology Development Agency (NSTDA) on 30 December 1991, BIOTEC became one of the NSTDA centers, operating outside the normal framework of civil service and state enterprises. This enabled the Center to operate more effectively to su
