My name is Anthony Chau, and I graduated from the University of Illinois in 2013 with a bachelors degree in biochemistry. My budding interests in RNA related diseases and transcriptome studies have brought me to Kalsotra lab. I grew up in several parts of the U.S., (mostly Andover MA and San Ramon CA), but have since moved to Hong Kong. I am an avid squash player and a big tennis fan. I will be working with myotonic dystrophy type 1 mouse models in order to test the effects of small molecule therapeutics (in collaboration with the Zimmerman lab).
