Neuro-Oncology Branch


Dr. Wu is an investigator and clinical neuro-oncologist. Her clinical interests revolve around understanding challenges in neuro-oncology care, and developing laboratory and clinical research programs to understand glioma biology and investigate novel therapeutic approaches to improve patient clinical outcomes. Her goal is to observe phenotypes and gaps in knowledge through her clinical practice, in order to address these questions in the laboratory and subsequently develop hypothesis-based clinical trials. 

There are two facets to Dr. Wu’s research. First, she seeks to understand gliomas that exhibit an aggressive phenotype, in order to develop a diagnostic tool to monitor their transformation from low-grade to high-grade disease when they exhibit rapid growth. Her second goal is to test the efficacy of the multi-kinase inhibitor TG02 in clinical trials, in order to understand its effects on high-grade astrocytomas and IDH-mutant gliomas.
