Andrew Fox, PhD

Assistant Professor of Psychology at University of California, Davis

Location: Davis, CA United States

Andrew Fox, PhD, is an Assistant Professor of Psychology at the University of California, Davis and a core scientist in Neuroscience and Behavior at the California National Primate Research Center. He received his PhD from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, where he continued his postdoctoral training in the Department of Psychiatry. He has over 15 years of experience working with non-human primates to elucidate the neurobiology that underlies the development of brain-based disorders. His lab strives to integrate across methodologies and scale to gain neurobiological insights and has incorporated data from the automated behavioral analysis, non-invasive brain imaging (e.g., MRI, PET), whole-genome sequencing, single-nuclear RNA-seq, and viral-vector manipulations, among others. This extensive experience with primate models sets the stage for ongoing Parkinson’s-relevant research using cutting-edge methodologies. The Fox lab’s integrative approach to primate neuroscience is focused on a refined understanding of the primate brain that bridges across molecular systems and behavioral neuroscience.
