Chris Chan

Chris is a Clinical Specialist in Dr. Fried’s group. He facilitates functional neurosurgical cases at Ronald Reagan Medical Center and fabricates research microelectrodes. Chris holds a triple major in neuroscience & cognitive science, biochemistry, and molecular & cellular biology from the University of Arizona. His senior thesis on transcranial ultrasound and its effect on Alzheimer’s is what drew him to the field of brain stimulation and memory. Chris previously researched the cardiac autonomic system in the porcine model at the David Geffen School of Medicine, where he has also collaborated with Amgen in a pharmacological study for anti-arrhythmia drugs. He hopes to create a lasting impact in electrode design in Dr. Fried’s group. In his free time, he cooks and plays MMOs.
