Dr Andy Wu
Andy Wu is a Research Officer at Mater Research Institute located at the Translational Research Institute, Brisbane. He graduated from The University of Queensland where he studied cell biology and biochemistry (BBiotech, Hons) and tissue engineering and biomaterials (PhD). His research focus involved development of a mouse osteotomy model to study bone biomaterial biocompatibility and osteointegration, and characterization of a clinically relevant rat and mouse model to understand mechanisms of fractures repair. Over the past few years, he has extended his research focus to cancer bone metastasis. He have developed a prostate cancer bone metastasis mouse model that recapitulates the key osteoblastic and osteolytic features seen in patient tumours. He apply this model to study immune regulation of tumour bone microenvironment.
