    BioAs a driven and inquisitive physician-scientist with a diverse background, Dr. Wu's research is centered on cardiovascular disease modeling (utilizing rodents and stem cells), molecular pathology, clinical genomics, and the development of novel therapeutics for cardiovascular diseases. I bring extensive experience in wet-lab experimentation, encompassing fundamental biomolecular techniques, cell culture, animal handling, cell and gene therapies, as well as large-scale next-generation sequencing (NGS) library preparation. Her multicultural exposure, coupled with advanced scientific training, equips me with a distinctive capacity for swift adaptation to new environments and tackling a wide range of projects. Currently, Dr. Wu spearheads research on transthyretin cardiac amyloidosis (ATTR), a rare and devastating protein misfolding disease. Utilizing iPSC, animal models, and human samples, her pioneering work promises significant insights into this life-threatening condition, aiming to enhance patient outcomes.
