Department of Psychology
George Mason University
Dr. Flinn was the chair of the Department of Psychology from 1984 to 1995. During her tenure, the department was ranked as one of the most improved programs by the National Chronicle of Higher Education. After stepping down as chair, she became the coordinator of the biopsychology concentration and developed the concentration in biopsychology in the Ph.D in psychology. In 2006, she took over the newly approved undergraduate B.S in neuroscience. The first 3 students graduated in 2009, and there are now over 100 students in the program.
Dr. Flinn’s research focuses on the role of metals in both behavior and physiology. Her research has emphasised the roles of zinc, copper and iron in anxiety, in learning and memory in general and in Alzheimer’s disease specifically, and also in macular degeneration. Her research has included developing genetically modified mice which model late onset Alzheimers disease, the most common form of the disease.
