Mentor: Matthew Scott, Professor of Developmental Biology, Genetics, and Bioengineering

A soon-to-be junior, Sara Broski is continuing her research in Dr. Matthew Scott’s laboratory. Her work focuses on understanding regulation of gene transcription and how inappropriate gene expression can result in tumorigenesis. When not working in the lab, Sara spends her time swimming, reading, and discovering new music. She is a Bay Area native who is majoring in biology and plans to practice as a paramedic for several years before ultimately going to graduate school for a degree in the neurosciences.
