Maggie Fuqua

Research Associate


Maggie joined the Allen Institute for Cell Science as a member of the Stem Cells and Gene Editing team in the Fall of 2015. In addition to helping her team in gene editing and clonal line generation, she also helps train new team members in cell culture. She earned her Bachelor and Master of Science degrees in Biology from Western Washington University where her love of cells and teaching began. Her undergraduate and graduate research focused on studying the voltage-gating properties of two channels in the gap junction family (Connexin-38 and Pannexin-1, respectively) under the guidance of Dr. Jose Serrano-Moreno. She originally joined the Allen Institute for Brain Science as a Research Associate in the in vitro Human Cell Types team.
Maggie is very interested in cell and mental health, and how the two are related. She is so excited by and thankful for this opportunity to learn from the cells with the help of her team here at the Allen Institute.
