    Dr. Roland Wu is a cardiologist specializing in non-invasive cardiovascular medicine and cardiovascular imaging. His research focuses on using emerging technologies in genetic editing and high-throughput sequencing to investigate cell signaling in cardiovascular disease. He graduated with a computer engineering degree at Cornell University. He conducted a research fellowship at Columbia University with Steven Marx before joining the University of California, San Francisco for his Cardiology fellowship and postdoctoral training with Dr. Shaun Coughlin at the Cardiovascular Research Institute.
