Dr. Sarah Bergeron

Congratulations are due to our newest PhD, Sarah Bergeron. A student of Peter Rubenstein, Dr. Bergeron defended her thesis in Molecular and Cellular Biology on “Biochemical Effects of Pathogenic Actin Mutations on Actin Function.”  After graduation, Sarah will do a short post-doctoral fellowship in the laboratory of Heather Bartlett.

Dr. Bergeron’s major contribution has been in molecular characterization of actin allels mutated in Thoracic Aortic Aneurysm and Dissection. Prior to setting out for points unknown, Dr. Bergeron will continue to characterize mutant forms of alpha smooth muscle actin as a post-doctoral fellow with Dr. Bartlett.
