Dr. Low received her early education in Australia and Canada. Pursuing an interest in studying how animal behavior arises from brain physiology, she received her Ph.D. in neuroscience from Northwestern University. Her thesis work studying circadian rhythmic behavior in Clock mutant chimeric mice was awarded the 2002 Donald B. Lindsley Prize from the Society for Neuroscience. Funded for six years by NIH SBIR grants, Dr. Low founded and ran a small company, MusWorks, Inc., whose mission was to provide chimeric mouse models to the research community.
