Iris Chin

Research Technician

Lab Affiliation: Yehuda Ben-Shahar

I am a research technician and the lab manager for the Ben-Shahar lab. In addition to overseeing day-to-day operations, I am working on a project involving the genetic networks underlying social behavior, taking guidance from the human disorder Williams Syndrome and developing hypotheses that extend to the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster and the broader animal kingdom. I am also working on our collaborative NeuroNex project, which aims to generate transgenic tools for non-traditional model insect species in order to facilitate neuroethology.
