Dr. Patrick Chen

Postdoc

I joined Dr. Flint's lab in 2019 to gain experience in more translationally focused research areas. Previously, I completed my PhD in Dr. Kelsey Martin's lab at UCLA and also a postdoc in Dr. Weizhe Hong's lab. I am interested in understanding 1) how chromatin architecture in the brain is regulated by genetic variation and how this relates to behavior, and 2) how genetic variation shapes neural circuit function and architecture in the brain to alter behavior. In my free time I like to write, watch TV/movies, read, and complain about the American healthcare system.
