Postdoctoral Fellow
Neurology

Carolina Alquezar Burillo is a postdoctoral fellow in the Kao Lab.

Carolina studied biology at the University of Autonoma in Madrid, Spain. She completed her PhD degree with Dr. Ángeles Martín-Requero at the Biological Research Center (CIB), where she investigated the role of progranulin within the molecular mechanisms of cell survival and death using peripheral blood mononuclear cells from FTLD patients. She uses CRISPR/Cas genome editing techniques in human induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to understand PSP risk factors in iPSC-derived neurons.
