Lan Tu, PhD


Dr. Lan Tu is a postdoctoral fellow in the Nigam group, where her primary research is focused on elucidating the mechanism of how cardiopulmonary bypass surgery leads to systemic inflammation and organ damage in neonates and infants. She is combining her knowledge of molecular biology and immunology to uncover new insights in the search for better care for pediatric cardiology patients. Before joining the Nigam group, Tu earned her BS degree in pharmacy from the National University of Singapore and received her PhD in molecular and integrative physiology from Cornell University.
