There's Something About Mary

Welcome to my WebPage! I hope you enjoy learning more about me!

Hello! My name is Mary Erb and I am from Boston, Massachusetts. I am a freshman at NC State and am planning on majoring in biomedical engineering. I want to be a biomedical engineer because I want to make a difference in the lives of others. I would love to work in a tissue engineering lab to make artificial organs for those that are in need of transplants.


This summer I received an opportunity to work in a biology lab at Harvard University. I worked Monday through Friday from 9-5 researching Posion Dart frogs from a region in Ecuador. I got to run my own experiment in which I fed the frogs toxins and used Mass Spectrometry to figure out to toxin concentration in each organ and see which organs would uptake toxins the fastest. From this experiment we learned that this species of frogs carries toxin within their brains.




Classes I Want to Take at NC State:

  1. Design
  2. Greek Mythology
  3. Anthropology
  4. Psychology
