Research Summary

Dr. Wu is performing transcriptome profiling on photoreceptors from healthy and degenerating retinas. His goal is to characterize molecular pathways of retinal disease and identify novel mechanisms that may be targeted to slow photoreceptor loss. Dr. Wu also sees vitreoretinal surgery patients at Mass. Eye and Ear's Longwood and Charles Street locations.
