The research faculty at Maine Medical Center Research Institute have academic appointments at University of Maine at Orono and the Tufts Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences. We provide graduate research training opportunities both at the M.S. and the Ph.D. level through these institutions, with thesis research performed in our basic science laboratories at the Scarborough research facility.
