Chen Wu, Ph.D., Post-doctoral Research Fellow

Chen obtained her B.S. from the University of Science and Technology of China, in Heifei, majoring in Biology. In 2002, she entered the Ph.D. program in developmental neurobiology at the City of Hope Graduate School of Biological Sciences in California. In her graduate work, she used mouse models to characterize a signaling pathway essential for maintenance of neural progenitor cells. Following graduation in the summer of 2008, Chen joined the Engle lab to work on the neuroanatomic description of the Tubb3R262C mouse, a model of the human axon guidance disorder, CFEOM3. Chen's current research addresses the hypothesis that Tubb3, unlike other beta-tubulins, plays a unique role in axonal guidance.
