Exploring the Science of Life
Gifts to Biology support our educational mission by enabling fundamental discovery, innovation, and research.
Tristan Bell PhD '20
I chose MIT Biology because of the unique departmental community. At many large graduate programs, molecular biology is split up across many departments. MIT Biology provided me with many research options to pursue as a new graduate student under a single department. This has proven to be an excellent choice. Even beyond choosing a lab to do my graduate research in, MIT biology’s collaborative departmental structure continues to facilitate conversations with researchers outside my discipline.
