Marcia B. Goldberg grew up in Brookline, Massachusetts. She received her BA from Harvard University, where she developed an interest in physiology, which encouraged her to attend Harvard Medical School. She traveled extensively, including a service trip to Gabon, and explored many aspects of medicine by working with various non-profits. During her residency, she researched virulence factors of Vibrio cholerae alongside Dr. Stephen B. Calderwood. She then spent several years studying Shigella flexneri pathogenesis in Philippe J Sansonetti's Lab at the Pasteur Institute. Goldberg became assistant professor at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, but after a few years moved to Harvard Medical School. Her current research focuses on the IcsA protein of Shigella flexneri and its role in actin assembly during the bacterium's infection of mammalian host cells.
