Gustav Cederquist, B.A.
Gustav obtained his B.A. from Harvard University in 2009, majoring in molecular and cellular biology. During his undergraduate years, Gustav worked with Dr. Jeffrey Macklis at the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Nervous System Repair to investigate molecular controls that regulate cortical projection neuron development.
Gustav joined the Engle lab in 2010 as a technician to learn about neurogenetics and cytoskeletal biology. His current research is aimed at understanding how human mutations in beta-tubulin coding genes lead to specific human neurological phenotypes. To address this issue, Gustav uses a combination of techniques, including in vivo gene manipulation, in vitro cellular assays, and biochemistry. He also collaborates with others to gather relevant genetic, clinical, and neuroradiological data.
