Meet Mariah, a graduate student originally from Florida who is pursuing her M.S. in Biomedical Engineering at NYU Tandon.
NYU Tandon has been life changing. I feel like I'm a completely different person in the best way possible. My name is Mariah Bater. I am a Biomedical Engineering master's student at NYU Tandon, and I'm from Orlando, Florida. I felt drawn to biomedical engineering because I like solving problems. What drew me to NYU Tandon is the location. You're in a hub of innovation. You have startups popping up everywhere. My favorite aspect of the program I'm studying is collaboration. I get to work with NYU Langone, which is the medical school and NYU Tandon. I learned what a team looks like and what leadership looks like. When you have a team, it's people who have different skills. So it's most important to come together, and realize strengths to get a problem solved. I conduct research alongside Dr. Kirsch and the Langone Medical Center. My specific research is with cartilage tissue. We're trying to see how normal cells talk to each other versus disease cells. At NYU Tandon, the professors are just great. They make time for you and they want to see you succeed. You'll have professors who will present opportunities in different countries, and different labs. They want to collaborate with you. They want you to go out in the world, and be the best you you can be. If you're considering coming to Tandon-- Take the leap. Join the world stage, make a difference, because coming here is the first step in making an impact.
