Biography :

Alan H. B. Wu, PhD, DABCC, FACB, is Director of Clinical Chemistry and Toxicology at Hartford Hospital; Professor of Laboratory Medicine, University of Connecticut Health Center, Farmington; and Adjunct Associate Professor of Pathobiology and Chemistry at the University of Connecticut, Storrs. He received BS degrees in chemistry and biology at Purdue University and a PhD degree in analytical chemistry at the University of Illinois. He completed a post-doctoral fellowship in clinical chemistry at Hartford Hospital. Before joining the staff at Hartford Hospital, he was Assistant Professor of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine at the University of Texas Medical School, Houston. He is certified by the American Board of Clinical Chemistry in Clinical Chemistry and Toxicological Chemistry.

Dr. Wu’s research interest has been in the fields of biochemical markers for cardiovascular disease, toxicology and drugs-of-abuse testing, and point-of-care testing for these markers. His major areas of interest in cardiac markers include creatine kinase, lactate dehydrogenase, myoglobin, troponin, and more recently, B-type natriuretic peptide. His major areas of interest in drugs-of-abuse testing include urine screening and confirmation analysis, testing for adulterants, and the analysis of volatile alcohols.
