Bioinformatics scientist, dedicated to elevating scientific communication
As a member of the Mesirov group in the Cancer Program, Sara works on GenomeSpace: a free, web-based platform connecting a variety of bioinformatic tools. Sara creates ‘recipes’, which help non-computational scientists complete analyses without programming. She first discovered her interest in teaching, writing and mentoring while pursuing a B.S. in Biology and Computer Science at the University of Miami. She continued teaching bioinformatics and mentoring other students in scientific communication while pursuing a Ph.D. in Bioinformatics at Boston University. When she’s not at the Broad Institute, Sara can be found hiking, reading, playing board games, or cooking up a feast for her friends.
