Victor Borja, B.S.


Laboratory Assistant

Victor graduated in June 2016 with a Bachelors degree in Neuroscience from the University of California, Santa Cruz. He joined the Frazer Lab in October 2016 as part of the iPSCORE Project in studying the hereditary genetic variability involved in cardiovascular disease using iPSC-derived cardiomyocytes. He is now working on retinal pigment epithelial differentiation to study the molecular basis of hereditary retinal degenerations. In the future, Victor hopes to further his experience with iPS technology to study the cellular and molecular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases and plans to attend graduate school to earn his PhD in the Biomedical Sciences.
