I chose Princeton because it was clear to me that the researchers here are focused and driven, but also friendly and fun. The atmosphere of collegiality among students and faculty here has made it easy to feel included in a lively research community. The most impressive characteristic of Princeton Molecular Biology I have noticed is its ability to assemble such a diversity of researchers with varying educational backgrounds and research interests into a department that is small enough to be a tight knit, collaborative unit. As someone with training in molecular biology, it is refreshing to constantly be exposed to different molecular biology questions ranging from bacterial pathogenesis to embryonic development to cancer. As someone without a strong quantitative background, I have found it extremely rewarding to interact with the members of our research community who have training in the fields of chemistry, physics, and even mathematics.
