Dr. Wu is an internal medicine physician and health services researcher. Her main research interest is the use of precision medicine applications to improve clinical care. She is involved in projects currently looking at a patient-facing family history risk assessment tool, MeTree, which provides individualized risk stratification and clinical decision support recommendations to clinicians and patients. In addition she is also involved in a large scale sequencing project in Singapore looking at the intersection of family health history and genomics to better understand how these data elements can complement one another and create more precise risk predictions.  Dr. Wu is also a program director at the Cooperative Studies Program Epidemiology Center at the Durham VA Medical Center where she leads a team coordinating the VA's research efforts in understanding Gulf War Illness.
