About Me

Chi-Kuo Hu

After graduation from Fu Jen University in Taiwan, I came to the U.S. to pursue my Ph.D. in Cell and Developmental Biology with Tim Mitchison at Harvard Medical School, followed by a postdoc training on Aging with Anne Brunet at Stanford University. Finally, I moved back to the East Coast as a faculty at Stony Brook University, with my excitement to be able to experience four seasons again.

While broadly interested in various biological questions, I am fascinated by the African killifish and especially its dormant state of diapause. My research aims to establish a new notion of dormant biology via understanding how dormancy manipulates development and aging in our life.
