Lionel Chow, MD, PhD, received his medical and graduate degrees from McGill University in Montreal, Canada, where his research focused on the regulation of T-lymphocyte signaling by the intracellular tyrosine protein kinases Lck and Csk.

Following his clinical training in pediatrics and pediatric hematology / oncology at the Hospital for Sick Children in Toronto, Canada, he moved to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., to pursue his research interests.

Chow's research interests have been centered on glioblastoma multiforme, a particularly devastating form of cancer in adults and children. His work has resulted in the development of a number of novel and robust laboratory models for this disease. Using these models and interfacing with clinical trials in the Neuro-Oncology Program as well as those from national consortia such as the Children's Oncology Group (COG) and the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium (PBTC), Chow’s laboratory will continue research in this area with the goals of better understanding the origins of this form of cancer and improving patient outcomes.
