Roy S. Wu, PhD '72

Branch Chief, Clinical Grants and Contracts Branch (CGCB), CTEP/NCI, National Institutes of Health

PhD 1972 (Biochemistry), Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University

Dr. Roy Wu’s PhD from Einstein was based on the publication of six papers including the first demonstration that nuclear proteins are synthesized in the cytoplasm. He went on to do post-doctoral work at U. C. Berkeley with F. Wilt , studying polyadenylation of embryonic mRNAs, and with W. Bonner, studying histone mRNAs, before spending several years in the early biotech industry. In 1979, Dr. Wu joined the NIH, where he has been instrumental in promoting clinical research and in the twelve-fold growth of CTEP’s grants portfolio to $360 million. His honors include:

  • Election as AAAS Fellow 2011
  • Hubert H. Humphrey Award For Service To America 2008
  • The American Society of Blood and Marrow Transplantation Public Service Award 2001
  • NIH Award of Merit 2001 for Exceptional Leadership
