I’m interested in how metabolism coordinates developmental fate decisions, but few labs study both stem cells and metabolism. I was fortunate to find the Yilmaz lab, which addresses both aspects. The best part of my MIT experience is working with a wonderful team of hard-working and collaborative colleagues: everyone is very generous with their time and will help with your research needs. MIT Biology organizes many avenues to support these interactions, including poster sessions, retreats, special seminars, and classes.
