    Timothy H. Chang

    Timothy H. Chang is a graduate from Stanford University with a BS and a focus in neuroscience. As an undergraduate, he studied the effects of maternal inflammation on fetal brain development in the lab of Dr. Theo Palmer.

    After joining UMMS, Timothy only rotated in Dr. Phillip Zamore’s lab before knowing he had found a home. In the Zamore lab, he studied small RNAs, epigenetics, and transposon regulation. For his thesis, he helped define an alternative transcriptional pathway required for fertility and produces regulatory small RNAs that transcriptionally and epigenetically repress endogenous viruses and genes.

    His current interests include applying his background in small RNAs and epigenetics to the cancer field. Timothy is applying to pediatric residencies with the goal to complete a Pediatric Hematology/Oncology fellowship.
