As a lab, we are interested in recruiting members from diverse educational backgrounds with varying career goals. This includes people with an interest in biology, engineering, computational biology, single-cell genomics/ transcriptomics, and immunology. We strive to support our lab members in all their efforts, both personally and professionally, as we seek to build a better understanding of women’s and reproductive health, immunology, and systems biology together. We are always looking for talented and curious students at all levels, from undergraduates to postdocs, to join us. Please reach out to Dr. Goods directly if you are interested in joining our group. See here for more details!


Lab Members

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.

Britt Goods

Principal Investigator

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.

Previous Trainees and Alumni

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.

Undergraduate researcher (co-mentored with Dr. Alex Shalek)

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.
