Maine Medical Research Center in Scarborough has attracted acclaimed scientists lately, some bringing grants with them, MaineBiz reports. One scientist is Dr. Peter Brooks, who after years of research on cell and cancer growth at prestigious research institutes around the US, decided to go back to his Maine roots in 2007 and continues his work at MMRCI as a senior researcher and lab head. “I always wanted to do research here in Maine.
