Post-doctoral researcher, Department of Psychology and Logopedics, Åbo Akademi University

For the past few years, Patrick Jern has been trying to figure out why sexual dysfunctions, especially ejaculatory diseases, occur. Having received his Ph.D. in 2010 and spent a year abroad getting wiser, he is now working on a project aiming to understand the genetic etiology of rapid ejaculation. Dr. Jern's research interests also include other sexual functions (and dysfunctions) in both genders.
