Dr. Wu’s main research interests are focused on the generation of new pluripotent stem cells (PSCs) for gaining novel insights in basic biology and developing new translational applications, as well as developing novel and efficient genome and epi-genome editing tools.

He has expanded the spectrum of pluripotent states by capturing novel pluripotent stem cells with distinct molecular and phenotypic features and derived novel PSCs from several rodent, livestock, and primate species.
