Huanmei Wu’s background has served her well in multidisciplinary research, leading to projects that explore the role of data management and analytics in computer science,  engineering, and technology, and how they can further medical and life science research.

In the field of biomedical research she is especially interested in personalized health and precision medicine, genomics/proteomics data mining and integrative prediction, image guided cancer radiation treatment, and big data analytics over massive biomedical information.

In image-guided cancer radiation treatment and tumor respiratory motion modeling, Wu has analyzed factors that affect the success of targeted radiation for accurate radiation dose delivery to tumors during treatment, and radiation-induced toxicities, through radiomics data modeling for precise radiotherapy based on biomarker analysis.

An award-winning researcher, her interests also include scientific database design and utilization, big data analytics, bioinformatics, and health informatics. Her research has been funded by NIH, PCORI, JDRI, and several research labs.
