Dr. Patrick Chen
Patrick joined Dr. Flint's lab in 2019 to gain experience in more translationally focused research areas. Previously, he completed my PhD in Dr. Kelsey Martin's lab at UCLA and also a postdoc in Dr. Weizhe Hong's lab. He is interested in understanding 1) how genetic variation relates to epigenetic and molecular features in the context of behavior, and 2) how genetic variation shapes neural circuit function and architecture in the brain to alter behavior. In his free time he likes to write, watch TV/movies, read, and complain about the American healthcare system.
