Would MIT Be A Good Fit?

<p>I am a young life-extensionist who's life goal is to cure or effectively prevent aging. Therefore I'll probably be going into the field of molecular biology/biomedical engineering.. Would MIT be a good fit for these interests, or are there better options.</p>

<p>short answer: yes!</p>

<p>There are a number of faculty members at MIT who study topics related to aging, most notably [url=<a href="http://web.mit.edu/biology/www/facultyareas/facresearch/guarente.html%5DLenny"&gt;http://web.mit.edu/biology/www/facultyareas/facresearch/guarente.html]Lenny&lt;/a> Guarente<a href="whose%20lab,%20I%20think,%20Piper%20UROPed%20in%20last%20year?">/url</a>.</p>

<p>I actually UROP'd in Reddien's lab. He works on regeneration genetics :D</p>
