Ken Kwan, Ph.D.

 After receiving a B.Sc. degree in Biochemistry from the University of Waterloo and a Ph.D. in Neuroscience from Yale University, Dr. Kwan joined the University of Michigan in 2013. 

The Kwan laboratory focuses on examining the fundamental and pathogenic mechanisms that can have in vivo consequences for neural circuit development and function. They aim to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms that underlie normal neural circuit assembly in the cerebral cortex, and the role circuit dysregulation plays in human neurodevelopmental disorders, in particular autism spectrum disorder, fragile X syndrome, and schizophrenia.
