Storing a struct in a cell

Hi, I am trying to create a 1x30 cell in which each cell contains a structure. My code so far is as follows:
groupavg = cell(1,30);
for i = 1:30
groupavg(:,i) = averages.timelock.(subject{i});
The error I get when I run this is "Conversion to cell from struct is not possible." When I use the function struct2cell I receive the error "Assignment has more non-singleton rhs dimensions than non-singleton subscripts."
I am trying to emulate some imported data that is a 1x10 cell with each cell filled by a 1x1 struct that has 7 fields, so I know this is possible but I'm not sure where I'm going wrong with storing the structure. Any help is appreciated.

Try curly brackets:
groupavg{:,i} = averages.timelock.(subject{i});
This places the RHS inside the cell element instead of trying to replace the cell element by a structure.
