Zhuhao and Silvia received the 2021 pilot award from the Mindich Child Health and Development Institute (MCHDI) at Mount Sinai to support our collaborative effort, investigating “Brain activity landscape with cellular mapping: Probing circuitry mechanism in a mouse model of intellectual disability.”
Jiacheng joins the lab, having just completed his Masters degree at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Welcome Jiacheng!

We are now all back in lab full-time following a period of remote work due to COVID-19. During this time, we continued to meet virtually and make progress in our research together. For several months back in the spring, Anna also worked in Mount Sinai’s Clinical Laboratory running SARS-CoV-2 serological testing to detect antibody levels and identify candidates for convalescent plasma donation. Now, we are happy to be back to the bench in the Wu Lab!
Salwa was admitted into the FlexMed program, Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai’s early assurance program. She will matriculate into medical school in 2022 after completing her undergraduate degree in biochemistry at Hunter College. There she will pursue her goal of becoming a doctor. Congratulations Salwa!!
