Dr. Britt Goods’ research lies at the intersection of reproductive health, immunology, and biological engineering. Britt received her PhD in Biological Engineering from MIT in 2017 and she received her B.Eng. from The Thayer School of Engineering in 2011. She is broadly interested in creating tools, approaches, and the requisite biological knowledge to address pressing clinical problems in reproductive health and immunology. She also enjoys hiking and hanging out with her family.
Daniela is a research technician in the Goods Lab and Shalek Lab (MIT) interested in applying single-cell technologies to better elucidate transcriptional changes that drive follicle activation, maturation and ovulation. When Daniela is not in the lab, you can find her exploring the city of Boston, front row in a spin-cycle class, or visiting family in Canada.
Yunbeen’s research focused on investigating how cell-cell communication was altered across the menstrual cycle and as a function of disease. She analyzed previously generated datasets from healthy donors and endometriosis patients to identify receptor-ligand pairs responsible for mediating interactions between stromal cells and macrophages or epithelial cells and macrophages. She is currently an undergraduate at MIT.
Michael’s research in the lab focused on developing computational methods for refining organoid composition via automated cell type identification. He also was responsible for generating single-cell RNA-seq data on endometriosis patients, revealing key cell states and altered cell-cell communication events. He is currently a graduate student in computational biology at Weill Cornell/ MSKCC and a biotech entrepreneur, investor, and community builder.
