Sarah HsuComputational Biologist Massachusetts General Hospital | Broad InstituteMSCB ’19
I entered the MSCB program with a biology background, hoping to gain the computational skills needed to pursue a career in computational biology. This program not only allowed to me learn the computational fundamentals such as algorithms and programming, but it also led me to gain a solid understanding of computational biology in just two years. At CMU, I joined a research group where I applied concepts I learned in class to perform bioinformatics analyses, giving me a taste of the type of work I’d be doing in the future.
Due to the abundance of research and course opportunities offered in this program, I left CMU equipped with all the technical and professional knowledge I needed to succeed in the industry. As a Computational Biologist at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and the Broad Institute, I am now performing genetic and transcriptomics analyses while working with some of the most respected researchers in the field.
