We foster a community that promotes research, knowledge, and creativity in the classroom and the lab.

I’ve always seen MIT as a place of opportunity. The research environment is extremely collaborative and welcoming towards undergraduates. The curriculum, based in the scientific literature, emphasizes problem solving and encourages us to put theory into practice. Our professors especially push us to think about research in ways we might not otherwise consider, which augments our work in the lab. Most importantly, MIT biology has an unparalleled sense of community, which I highly value.
