After college, I became a research technician in the biological engineering department at MIT. So when the time came to decide where to apply to grad school, I had already experienced the exciting environment here. I enjoyed visiting several other schools, but I chose MIT because I liked that the classes are very rigorous, that the department is very collaborative and acts as one umbrella for many different types of biology, and that there are so many excellent labs studying different aspects of cancer biology.
