Monica Chau, PhD
Dr. Chau's research interests are in stem cell biology and hypoxia in central nervous system injury and disease. She earned her PhD in neuroscience at Emory University where she studied induced pluripotent stem cells as a therapy for ischemic stroke. Her dissertation work, for which she was awarded an American Heart Association fellowship, focused on upregulating hypoxia-activated genes in stem cells to improve functional recovery after injury. Her postdoctoral fellowship at Emory examined hypoxia-activated genes and their role in brain tumor progression. She is continuing this work in the laboratory of Dr. Gregory Bix, supported by an American Cancer Society fellowship.
