Marianna Trakala

MIT Biology encourages me to ask challenging questions and provides state of the art technology to answer them. My lab offers an exciting environment where translational and curiosity-driven research can co-exist. I’ve had the chance to mentor a UROP student, and share the skills I’ve learned with the next generation of scientists. In the future, I hope to have a career in academia, fostering a team of researchers armed with the motivation, energy and discipline to address major health problems in our society.
