Mashwiyat Mosharraf (Mimu) is a junior in the Honors program at the university. She is currently working on the Yale Plasmid Project, where we inject plasmids, containing human hydrocephalus-associated gene mutations, in mice. Our focus is to determine whether these genes can induce hydrocephalus. Outside of lab, she is a member of Bangladeshi Student Association (BSA) which is a cultural club on campus. Fun fact about Mimu is that she can learn languages quickly; she knows about 5 languages.
