Originally from the Netherlands, Margaretha Morsink joined the lab in September 2021 as a PhD student. She graduated cum laude with a master's degree at the University of Twente in Biomedical Engineering, specializing in Bioengineering Technologies. Her research focused on the ER-to-Golgi trafficking of mucin-2, providing insights in the pathophysiology of inflammatory bowel disease. Previously, she worked in the lab of Dr. Shin at Harvard Medical School to develop an in vitro tissue model of liver fibrosis. She is thrilled to pursue cutting-edge research in engineering functional tissues and modeling disease pathologies.
When she is not in the lab, Maggie loves exploring hiking areas and trying out the different cuisines found in New York.
