A Love of Science
“Touro instilled in me a love of science that will stay with me forever. There are reasons for everything, I’ve learned. Science shows you the world in a totally different way.”
In her senior year, Sara Friedman did research in the Molecular and Cellular Bioengineering laboratory at Rutgers University. Her team was trying to turn red blood cells into induced pluripotent stem cells (also known as iPS cells) to help treat cardiac diseases, and the discoveries she made were groundbreaking.
Now, the Biology Honors major and 2014 grad is pursuing physical therapy, armed with the scientific research and knowledge she’s gained in the lab.
“Touro instilled in me a passion for education, especially in the field of biology, and a passion for following your dreams—for doing what you love. Essentially, I’m doing something that’s going to help the world—that’s going to save lives.”
This is Sara Friedman’s LAS.
