Kin Fai Au, Ph.D.

Professor of Computational Medicine and Bioinformatics

Areas of Interest

Dr. Au is currently an Associate Professor of Biomedical Informatics at Ohio State Unviersity. At DCMB, he will develop novel statistical and computational methods for analyzing high-throughput biological data, including but not limited to transcriptome- and epigenetics-sequencing data. His lab will also perform world-leading science in stem cell biology, developmental biology and cancer research using cutting-edge sequencing techniques from PacBio and Oxford Nanopore Technologies. One of his current projects aims to design advanced algorithms and statistical models for analyzing transcriptome data generated from third-generation sequencing platforms. These methods will then be applied to study the complexity of breast cancer and stem cell transcriptomes.
