Division of Hematology/Oncology
Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center

Dr. Chow received his medical and graduate research training at McGill University in Montreal, Canada. He subsequently completed clinical training in Pediatrics followed by Pediatric Hematology and Oncology at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada. Further research training focused on brain tumors was obtained at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN.

He is now at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center and the University of Cincinnati where he heads a research laboratory investigating a particularly aggressive form of brain cancer in children called High-Grade Glioma (HGG). Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is one type of HGG with a particularly devastating outcome in children. Using a combination of laboratory models for the disease and human tumor specimens, Dr. Chow hopes to gain a better understanding of this terrible disease in order to design new and more effective ways to treat patients.
