Life in the Shalek Lab is non-stop action! Between our three lab spaces in Cambridge (IMES, Broad, Ragon) and numerous collaborations around the world (England, South Africa, Switzerland, and Thailand to name a few), the team is always on the move, exploring new places and ideas to execute collaborative, cutting-edge science. Regardless of our physical location, we strive to provide an excellent support system for our lab members by creating a laid-back, inquisitive, and open environment through constant communication, shared expertise, and mentorship. A fully stocked snack drawer and epic coffee doesn’t hurt lab morale either.
Hexagons: a Little Style to Describe Us
Every single cell is important, but no single cell matters – our lab has the same philosophy. Everyone in the Shalek Lab contributes their own unique combination of skills and experience to the team, so that together we perform groundbreaking research in excess of the sum of our parts. Our backgrounds and areas of scientific interest (light blue) synergize with our passions outside of lab (green) and distinct personalities (dark blue) to create collaborative working groups capable of tackling any task put in front of them.
