Our lab combines novel imaging approaches with genetics to study neural system structures in the whole organism level. We study from individual neurons to assembled circuitries for their proper formation to ensure mature functions, as well as their changes in aging and disease. This is the basic knowledge that we need in order to understand how our brains (and peripheral nervous systems) mediate a myriad of physiological functions, how they adapt or maladapt to changes and stresses, and how we may restore their functions in human mutations and diseases.

Physicians and scientists on the faculty of the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai often interact with pharmaceutical, device and biotechnology companies to improve patient care, develop new therapies and achieve scientific breakthroughs. In order to promote an ethical and transparent environment for conducting research, providing clinical care and teaching, Mount Sinai requires that salaried faculty inform the School of their relationships with such companies.
Dr. Wu has not yet completed reporting of Industry relationships.
Mount Sinai's faculty policies relating to faculty collaboration with industry are posted on our website. Patients may wish to ask their physician about the activities they perform for companies.
