Shahed Sbeta '19

My name is Shahed Sbeta and I am a sophomore majoring in Biochemistry at Earlham College. I was born and raised in Tripoli, Libya and moved to California in 2014. I graduated high school in Tripoli with a focus on Life Sciences, and I was one of the top ten students all over the country. After Earlham, I want to study medicine and then Neurosurgery or Cardiac surgery. During the summer of 2016, I interned at Indiana University, School of Medicine where I worked in a biomedical laboratory. This laboratory focuses on bone diseases and mineral metabolism. During this period, I mostly worked on a project that focuses on the disease Osteoporosis. As a student who is considering an MD/ PhD degree, this internship had given me the opportunity to explore the research world, in addition to learning many other skills and information that will serve as a spectacular guide for upcoming research projects and medical school.
