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.
