Karthik Shekhar

I chose to pursue my graduate and postdoctoral training at MIT because of its interdisciplinary nature, and because cutting-edge and boundary-pushing science happens here. What amazed me was the fluidity with which different disciplines collaborated — I could go where my interests carried me without fear of discouragement or judgment. My postdoctoral research has led to the discovery of a new cell type in the mouse retina — pretty cool! All that I know about doing science, I learned at MIT.
