Harland Lab, IB-Human Health Senior, 2017
Senior Honors Thesis: Investigating Beta-catenin Mechanosensation and BMP Signaling during Skin Morphogenesis

In the past year and a half in the Harland Lab, Postdoc Amy Shyer says that Grant Schroeder has "designed and successfully carried out multiple pivotal experiments in the lab — one earned our paper a chance to be reviewed in a top journal, and the other formed the basis of an NIH grant.” Schroeder will be a co-author on the paper set to be published in Science. Schroeder says he tried to make the most of his undergraduate career — not just focusing on research and academics, but also by mentoring other incoming undergraduates in the lab and participating in athletics throughout all his years at Berkeley.

“Working in the Harland lab is both an honor and a privilege. I consider myself extremely lucky to be able to engage in world-class research amongst so many supportive and distinguished lab members,” says Schroeder.

At graduation this Spring, Schroeder was awarded Berkeley’s highest honor for an undergraduate — the University Medal.
