In the Lab

The Wu lab specializes in Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), offering a unique window into understanding these puzzles. At the forefront of multidisciplinary research, the team investigates brain injury mechanisms from an integrative perspective. Employing computational models, preclinical tools, and neuroimaging, Wu uncovers insights into individual brain phenotypes, recovery processes, and personalized diagnostics. Wu’s work spans biomechanics, neuroscience, and brain recovery, with a vision to transform TBI comprehension, enable tailored protection and therapies, and advance our understanding of the brain’s intricate network system.
