When I visited MIT Biology as a prospective student, I remember everyone seemed friendly and happy — which was promising because grad students are a good reflection of what a program is like. I’m a biochemist by training, but the department’s broad interests have allowed me to meet people with diverse research backgrounds. For example, in the Keating lab, I collaborate with computational biologists to study protein-protein interactions.
