Samuel Kwon graduated from Australian National University with a B.Sc. in 2004. He went on to study with Edwin Chapman at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and received a Ph.D. in Physiology in 2011. He did his postdoctoral work with Daniel O'Connor at Johns Hopkins Medical School.
The Kwon lab focuses on cellular, molecular and circuit mechanisms underlying the plasticity in mammalian brain using in vivo imaging, electrophysiology, opto/pharmacogenetics, and behavior.
