Sarah Goodman

Sarah Goodman, Medical Biotechnology Class of 2012, conducted research her senior year on genetic mutations linked to schizophrenia and Parkinson’s disease. “I like working on genetics, and with DNA,” Sarah said. “I’ve always been interested in genetics and neurodegenerative disorders. It’s like a puzzle, and the mystery is where the pieces should go.”
