Dr Wu is interested in elucidating the principles underlying the organization and dynamics of the subcellular membrane compartments. Specifically her lab investigates how biological membranes are shaped through collective protein-lipid interactions and how geometry of the membrane compartment is coupled to cellular functions. The Wu Lab uses a combination of cell biological, biophysical and biochemical approaches to address these questions.
Dr Wu Min graduated from Peking University in China and received her bachelor degree in Chemistry. She did her graduate studies at Cornell University with Dr Barbara Baird, where she initiated the use of patterned lipid bilayers as antigen-presenting platforms and studied immune cell activation and signal transduction. During her post-doctoral research in the laboratory of Dr Pietro De Camilli at Yale School of Medicine, she focused on the molecular mechanisms of endocytosis. In 2011, she was awarded the NRF fellowship, joining CBIS/MBI in the fall.
