Biology classes have a reputation for being memorization-heavy, but MIT Bio’s approach is all about taking the information you’ve learned and using it to solve interesting problems — which I find incredibly enjoyable. I’ve also had the opportunity for hands-on practice; joining the Grossman lab was the best decision I’ve made. I’ve learned different lab techniques, how to plan and troubleshoot experiments, and so much about bacterial DNA replication that wasn’t covered in my classes. It’s a great place to come each day. If I could, I’d spend all my time there.
