Brian Lee, PhD
Dr. Brian Lee is a Senior Scientist at the Allen Institute. During his graduate career at Washington State University and his postdoctoral fellowship at the Scripps Research Institute, Brian focused on examining the role of circuitry-based reorganization of synapses during exposure to drugs of abuse and withdrawal. Upon arriving at the institute in 2014, Brian shifted his interest to study the molecular underpinnings of cell types and their functional properties. Ultimately, he played a key role in the development and optimization of the Patch-seq technique and implementation into an institute-wide pipeline. Currently, Brian manages the electrophysiology group and ongoing Patch-seq development efforts.
