Carson C. Chow, Ph.D., Senior Investigator

Dr. Chow received a Bachelor of Applied Science from the University of Toronto and a PhD in theoretical physics from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1992. After his doctoral training he held a postdoctoral fellowship in nonlinear dynamics at the University of Colorado. In 1994, he switched fields to theoretical biology and neuroscience and obtained further postdoctoral training at Boston University, first with Jim Collins and then with Nancy Kopell. He took a faculty position in the Department of Mathematics at the University of Pittsburgh in 1998, rising to the level of Associate Professor before moving to NIH in 2004. In 1999 he was awarded an Alfred P. Sloan Research Fellowship. His current research focus is in theoretical biological and neuroscience, particularly in areas applicable to the control of feeding and metabolism.
