Dr. Wu received his undergraduate degree in molecular and cell biology at the University of California, Berkeley in 2007 and his medical doctorate from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2011. He then completed a general surgery residency at the University of California, San Francisco (2011-2018). During this time he also completed a two year research fellowship with Dr. Michael Conte studying the role of resolution biology in vascular surgery and restenosis (2014-2016). He is currently a vascular surgery clinical fellow at the University of California, San Francisco. In addition to vascular surgery, Dr. Wu has interest in and commitment to surgical education.

Dr. Wu's past research focused on the mechanisms of resolution in acute vascular injury for which he was the PI on two Postdoctoral Individual National Research Service Award (F32) grants awards from the NIH/NHLBI. Through the opportunities and resources provided by the Conte lab, he developed the essential knowledge of and experience with in vitro and in vivo techniques for his future career in translational research and vascular biology. His experience in the Conte Lab inspired and invigorated his passion for science and prepared him for future career as a productive and innovative surgeon-scientist.

  • Postdoctoral Individual National Research Service Award (F32) NIH/NHLBI - Principal Investigator on two grants.
