Damon Page

Principal Investigator
Email: paged@scripps.edu

Damon, Assistant Professor in the Department of Neuroscience, received his bachelor’s degree in biology from Eastern Oregon University in 1999 and his PhD from the University of Cambridge in 2002. He was a postdoctoral fellow at the MRC Laboratory of
Molecular Biology from 2002 to 2004 and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) from 2004 to 2009; he worked as a research scientist at
MIT from 2009 to 2010.


Amy Clipperton Allen

Amy Clipperton Allen

Research Associate
Email: aallen@scripps.edu

Amy graduated in 2011 with a Ph.D. in Psychology and Neuroscience from the University of Guelph. She studied the involvement of estrogens and their receptors in social behaviour and social learning in mice, with Dr. Elena Choleris. Amy will initially be working on developing an autism-related behavioral test battery, and using it to begin phenotyping Pten haploinsufficient and Pten null mutant mice.

Ori Cohen

Research Associate
Email: ocohen@scripps.edu

Ori graduated in 2015 with a PhD in Anatomy and Cell Biology from SUNY Upstate Medical University. His research in the PsychGENe Lab, directed by Stephen J. Glatt, focused on the genomic and transcriptomic variants that contribute to the development of mental disorders. Ori is studying the genetic landscape of autism and how risk factors influence the development of cell types and circuits underlying behavior in the brain.


Youjun Chen
Youjun Chen

Research Associate
Email: ychen@scripps.edu

Youjun graduated in 2010 from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill with a PhD in Neuroscience. She studied the roles of APC and APC2 in the development of mouse nervous system in Dr William Snider’s lab. Youjun is investigating the effects of Pten on neuron growth and synaptogenesis using mouse genetic models.



Julien Sejourne
Julien Sejourne

Research Associate
Email: jsejourn@scripps.edu

Julien graduated in 2009 with a Ph.D in Neurosciences from the University Pierre et Marie Curie of Paris. His work focused on the study of neuronal networks and on the dynamics of olfactory memory phases in Drosophila with Dr. T. Preat. Julien will be working on the role of genes implicated in autism in the
development of excitatory-inhibitory (E/I) circuit balance, using mouse and Drosophila as model systems.
