MIT Biology places a lot of emphasis on training students to ask rigorous scientific questions and investigate the answers. We all take classes during our first year, and everyone in the department is an expert in a different field of biology. I’ve benefitted a lot from just talking to people about biology in general. I’ve learned that discussing ideas is probably one of the most enjoyable parts of being a scientist.
