Background Information

Dr. Chow received his PhD in Chemical Engineering from the University of Washington. After completing his PhD, Dr. Chow remained in Seattle pursuing post-doctoral research work in Immunology at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Benaroya Research Institute at Virginia Mason. Dr. Chow has been actively participating in the innovation of tetramer technologies since joining the Benaroya Research Institute and is currently the manager of the tetramer core.

Area of Research

Dr. Chow’s research projects are focused on understanding the immunopathology and regulation of disease-triggering helper T lymphocytes in autoimmune disorders. The primary objective of his work emphasizes on obtaining in-depth immune profiling of antigen-specific T lymphocytes that can be potential prognostic, diagnostic, and therapeutic biomarkers for autoimmunity diseases. Translational data from these studies using novel tetramer-based technologies and peptide-linked tetramer reagents will provide important avenues for new drug targets and evaluation of treatment efficacy.
