Sarah EpsteinGLOBES IGERT
University of Notre DameNotre Dame, IN
Sarah recently earned bachelor degrees in Molecular and Cell Biology and Spanish at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, Mass. As an undergraduate, she interned at Boston Scientific Corporation (BSC) in Natick, Mass., conducting several assays and ELISAs to identify various properties of extracellular matrix. She also completed a team-based senior research project on mutations of the mig-10 gene in the nematode C. elegans.
While Sarah has always been very interested in cell biology and genetics, she enrolled in several courses during her senior year that also piqued her interest in disease and its treatment. As a result, she would like to focus her PhD dissertation work on an as-yet unspecified area of infectious disease. She is excited and honored to be a pioneer GLOBES fellow at the University of Notre Dame beginning Fall semester 2006.
When not in the lab, Sarah enjoys singing, supporting her favorite Boston sports teams, and traveling the world to explore new cultures.
