Gregory Chinn, MD, PhD

Asst Professor in Residence
Biography: 

Gregory Chinn is a board certified anesthesiologist and research scientist who practices anesthesia at the Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and studies the effects of early life anesthesia exposure on brain development at the UCSF Parnassus campus in the lab of Jeffrey Sall. He is interested in understanding how critical periods are regulated during brain development and how they relate to neurotoxicity.
