Clement Chow received his BA from Cornell University in 2003. He completed his PhD in 2008 in the Department of Human Genetics at the University of Michigan, where he worked with Miriam Meisler. Chow completed his postdoctoral training as a co-mentored postdoc with Andy Clark and Mariana Wolfner at Cornell University.
His lab is focused on understanding the role of genetic variation on disease outcomes. He employs quantitative and functional tools, in a variety of model organisms, to study how genetic variation impacts basic cellular traits important to human health. Chow’s work in model organisms will help to model and inform studies of genetic variation in the human population. He hopes to identify variation in the human population that can lead to more precise, personalized therapies.
