Dr. Chow received his medical training and doctorate at McGill University in Montreal, Canada where his research focused on the role of tyrosine protein kinases in T-cell activation. He completed his Pediatric Residency at The Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada which was followed by a fellowship in Pediatric Hematology and Oncology. He then moved to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN where his research concentrated on developing animal models of high-grade astrocytoma. He also completed a fellowship in Pediatric Neuro-Oncology at St. Jude. He then joined the faculty at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center as a pediatric neuro-oncologist as well as conducting research on high-grade astrocytoma and angiosarcoma. At Dayton Children’s, Dr. Chow anchors a group of providers that delivers multidisciplinary care to the brain tumor population. He has also initiated a research program that has a focus on developing unique patient-derived xenograft models of pediatric brain tumors in order to advance novel treatments for high-grade tumors.
