Dr. Szu is a postdoctoral research fellow at the Department of Translational Neurosciences and Neurotherapeutics at Saint John’s Cancer Institute. She is investigating small molecule inhibitors to promote anti-tumor activity.
Dr. Szu received her BS in Biological Sciences at UC Irvine and her PhD in Neuroscience at UC Riverside. At UC Riverside, she focused on characterizing intrinsic optical signal changes in models of cerebral edema, epilepsy, and traumatic brain injury using optical coherence tomography imaging. Her dissertation focused on identifying potential biomarkers for post-traumatic epilepsy. After graduation, Dr. Szu was a postdoctoral scholar at UC Irvine where she characterized cerebrovascular changes in models of Alzheimer’s Disease.
