Research Summary

Dr. Natalie Wu is a pediatric hematologist-oncologist who cares for patients with a variety of childhood cancers. She also provides care in UCSF's survivorship program for patients who have completed their cancer treatment.

Wu's research focuses on the long-term health outcomes of childhood cancer survivors and transplant recipients, seeking to identify patients most at risk for complications later in life.
