Stacey Kirkpatrick (Technician, Lab Manager)
Stacey was a laboratory technician and the lab manager in the Laboratory of Addiction Genetics. She earned her undergraduate degree from the University of Chicago in 2012 where she majored in comparative human development. During college, Stacey worked in Dr. Abraham Palmer’s Lab studying the genetics of fear and anxiety in mice. Stacey and Dr. Bryant worked in the same laboratory at the University of Chicago and as luck would have it, they both moved here at the same time – thus, Stacey was the ideal person for the position. She is currently about to start her first year of medical school in the fall.
