Map Update:
Bioscience Map of Maine

We are excited to share our new, updated Bioscience Map of Maine with you! Our previous map was great but with more and more companies on board, it was time to give it a new, fresh, clean look. Plus, it is animated!

Upcoming Event
Industry Exploration: Maine Biotechnology

Educate Maine and BioME have partnered to host a panel discussion focusing on careers in biotech. Attendees will hear from four panelists who have built their careers within Maine's biotech industry.

This virtual event will feature Allison Doughty (Abbott), Nicole Nguyen (Artel), Bram Bergeron-Smith (EnviroLogix), Casey Doucette, PhD (IDEXX), and Agnieszka Carpenter (BioME, moderator).

Learn about each of the four companies, industry applications, and potential paths and opportunities to explore in research labs, manufacturing, and more.

This event is best for students but open to all.

ME Bioscience Day 2020

BioME's 5th annual ME Bioscience Day will take place on November 17, 2020. This is a statewide event that aims to get middle school students excited about science and inform them of the opportunities that they might have working in a science-related field in their future. In 2019, we were able to reach 3,300 students through this event.

Although we don't know what Maine's middle schools will look like this fall, we are planning ahead. If you are interested in this effort and would like to devote a couple hours and give back to the community, now is the time to register.
P.S. You don't need to be a science expert to volunteer!
