Faculty

The following faculty laboratories will be accepting HIP-SAT interns for summer 2022:


Prof. Matt Shoulders’ Group
(http://shoulderslab.mit.edu/)

The Shoulders Lab is broadly interested in understanding protein folding in human cells, with a focus on the development of new methods to treat currently incurable, protein misfolding-related diseases. They also devise new platforms to create medically relevant biotechnologies.

 


Prof. Michael Strano’s Group
(http://srg.mit.edu/)

The Strano Lab is offering projects in the area of plant biology, medicine, and energy applications. Specifically, they are offering projects for the design and incorporation of nanoparticles into living plants for new functions such as chemical sensing, infrared communications and light emission. There are also projects on energy harvesting from ambient heat, and sensors to help treat diabetes and cancer treatment.
