Albert Wu MDDepartment of Ophthalmology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA
Dr. Albert Y. Wu graduated from Yale University and completed his medical training at the University of Washington. As part of the Medical Scientist Training Program, he also obtained a Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Biology. Dr. Wu then completed ophthalmology residency at the Moran Eye Center in Salt Lake City. Subsequently, he finished a two-year fellowship at the University of Toronto in Oculoplastic Surgery accredited by the American Society of Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS). During this time, Dr. Wu developed broad expertise in ophthalmic plastic surgery as well as in facial rejuvenation techniques. Dr. Wu's translational research program in the Department of Ophthalmology at the Stanford University School of Medicine focuses on using autologous stem cells to recreate a patient’s ocular tissues for potential transplantation. By applying advanced molecular biology and stem cell technologies, Dr. Wu’s laboratory tries to make regenerative medicine a reality for those suffering from orbital and ocular disease.
