The Bell Center was established in 2010 through the gifts of Millicent Bell and Valerie Rowe. According to the Bell Center website: "research in the Bell Center is intended to elucidate the molecular, genetic and cellular mechanisms underlying the growth and replacement of highly differentiated tissues during development, physiological turnover and repair following injury. These processes are critical to human health and biology and have been the focus of elegant studies in a myriad of model organisms at the Laboratory since the pioneering work of MBL scientists Thomas Hunt Morgan and Jacques Loeb" (ND). The Bell Center is home to a wide range of scientists, who study a variety of topics from organismal behavior, to regeneration, to imaging. Bell Center scientists also collaborate with scientists at the University of Chicago and the Argonne National Laboratory.
