Alvin Tran is an undergraduate student majoring in Molecular, Cell, and Developmental Biology at UCLA. He is interested in understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying normal brain development, which may provide further insight into neurodevelopmental disorders. His current project explores the role of gene regulatory elements on cell type composition and neuron migration within the developing human neocortex. In his free time, Alvin enjoys playing piano, watching movies, and volunteering with Vietnamese Community Health.
