In recent years, she has channelled her interest in neurorehabilitation into her research which is primarily focused on the neurobehavioral and neurocognitive changes associated with cancer and its treatment, and the development of interventions to treat such changes. She is also interested in the underlying biological and chronobiological mechanisms of the cancer symptom cluster (including fatigue, cognitive impairment, sleep and mood disturbances) in cancer survivors. Dr. Wu's research has been funded by the National Cancer Institute and the American Cancer Society.[Shorten text]
