She completed an internship in Internal Medicine at Texas Tech University Medical Center, and a Neurology residency at The University of Texas Health Science Center, Houston, where she also served as the chief resident in 2008. Dr. Wu completed her clinical Neuro-Oncology fellowship training at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, Texas. Dr. Wu joined the faculty of School of Medicine, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2010 as assistant professor of Neurosurgery, Neurology and Medical Oncology. Prior joining CCR, she served co-director of brain tumor program, Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center, University of North Carolina Cancer Network. Currently, she serves as a Tenure Track Investigator and the Director of Neuro-Oncology Fellowship Program at NOB, CCR.

She is certified both by the American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology (ABPN) in Neurology and United Council for Neurologic Subspecialties (UCNS) in Neuro-Oncology. Dr. Wu has published more than 38 peer reviewed articles and serves as an invited reviewer for many journals. She has received many academic and research awards including William James Miller Endowed Fellowship Award in Neuro-oncology and an NIH/NCI Paul Calabresi Clinical Oncology Scholar Award. She specializes in CNS neoplasms and neurological complications of systemic cancers. Her research focuses on developing preclinical studies in discovering novel therapies for glioma patients.
