Sarah Bening, Communication Fellow

Communication Fellow
3rd year graduate student, Biological Engineering, Collins Lab

Sarah is a graduate student in MIT’s Biological Engineering department. Her research in the Collins lab is focused on understanding the bacterial response to antibiotics. She’s originally from Minnesota, and received her undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering from the University of Minnesota (though if you talk to her for too long, you’ll think she majored in marching band). Her interests haven’t changed much since grade school when she wrote a poem about cheeseburgers, changed the lyrics of “YMCA” to “y=mx+b”, and got the softball glove she still uses today.
