    The Chun Laboratory

    The Chun Lab’s research was born from a longstanding interest in understanding how the brain, particularly the cerebral cortex, develops.  Over decades, this line of inquiry gave rise to two novel fields of research that form the core of our current efforts:  1) the actions of small fat molecules known as lysophospholipids, and 2) the study of genomic mosaicism in the brain – a surprising phenomenon where cells from the same individual actually have different genomes. Discoveries from these two fields have uncovered basic insights into the developing brain, as well as clinically relevant drug treatments. Read More About Us
