Casey Brown was a Lily-LSRF postdoctoral fellow in the Kevin White Laboratory at the University of Chicago Institute for Genomics and Systems Biology.  He was a graduate student with Arend Sidow in the Genetics Department at Stanford University. His research focuses on how genotypes produce phenotypes and how they vary and evolve. He used a combination of experimental and computational approaches on several projects, including: (a) Identification of the environmental and genetic determinants of gene expression variation in the human liver, (b) Application of new DNA sequencing technologies to discover and characterize genetic variants in understudied tumor types, and (c) Characterization of the cis-regulatory architecture of Drosophila, as a part of the modENCODE consortium. He left the IGSB to become an Assistant Professor at the University of Pennsylvania in 2013.
