Conducting their investigations at world-class facilities, MIT Biology researchers are working at the frontier of molecular inquiry making vital contributions in genetics, genomics, and computational biology.
Researchers in the Weinberg Lab captured this stunning photo showing the different stages of skeletal muscle differentiation. As the muscle progenitors differentiate, their color changes from green to red to pink.
The Vander Heiden Lab studies how metabolism is regulated in mammalian cells. Tracing the fate of isotope labeled nutrients by mass spectrometry is one approach they use to understand nutrient use by cancer cells.
