Tina Wu is a research assistant for the Neuromotor Behavior Laboratory. She is working with Dr. Seidler on studying impulsive behavior in Parkinson’s disease and with Dr. Miller on the effects of an exercise program on patients with Parkinson’s disease.
Her interest in neuroscience began as an undergraduate, where she became intrigued with the brain and brain function. She received her B.S. from the University of Michigan in Neuroscience with a minor in Women’s Studies. She also has a M.S. from University of Michigan in Physiology.
“Being involved in research on Parkinson's is fascinating because there is so much we have yet to learn and explore about it; I also enjoy meeting all the great patients who are willing to contribute to research and share their experiences with us.”
Tina plans on attending graduate school to become a physician assistant and subsequently be in practice.
In her spare time, Tina enjoys cozying up with a good book, cooking, and trying new food.
