New professorship in tissue engineering links molecular engineering, marine biology

n search of breakthrough discoveries that could have profound impacts for patients," said Matt Tirrell, the founding Pritzker Director of the Institute for Molecular Engineering.

For more than a century, scientists at the MBL in Woods Hole, Mass. have studied how certain marine species are able to regenerate damaged tissue. The MBL's Bell Center includes a national resource for research on the frog called Xenopus, which has unique regenerative abilities and is a major animal model for biomedical research.

"This extraordinary gift from the Millicent and Eugene Bell Foundation continues the Bell family's generous support of the Marine Biological Laboratory by providing a transformative research opportunity in our affiliation with the University of Chicago," said MBL President and Director Joan Ruderman.

Millicent Bell, a trustee of the Marine Biological Laboratory since 2009, made the gift through the Bell Foundation in memory of her late husband, Dr. Eugene Bell, a longtime member of the MBL scientific community. While a professor at MIT from 1956 to 1986, Eugene Bell founded the field of tissue engineering through efforts to generate replacement tissue for treating severe burns and other injuries. After retiring from MIT, Eugene Bell founded two companies: Organogenesis Inc., to produce replacement skin, and TEI Biosciences, which used expertise in regenerative medicine to develop new biologic products for various soft tissue repair applications.

"Gene would have been delighted to see how beautifully his hopes for a grand future for tissue engineering are going forward, and I am overjoyed to be able to continue to help in the effort," Millicent Bell said. "I am looking forward to the prospect of advanced research and of its medical application that will resultand am extremely pleased to see Gene's humane dreams realized."
