Kin Fai Au, PhD, is an associate professor in the Department of Biomedical Informatics at The Ohio State University and a member of the Translational Therapeutics Program at the OSUCCC – James, where he works on developing novel statistical and computational methods for analyzing high-throughput biological data, including but not limited to transcriptome- and epigenetics-sequencing data.

Dr. Au’s lab also performs 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.

Dr. Au has co-authored many articles in scientific journals such as PNAS, Genome Biology, Genome Research, Science, Cell and Nature Genetics, and he is on the editorial board for the journals Scientific Reports and Frontiers in Genetics.
