Research Interest: Neuropsychopharmacology of Lipid Transmitters (CTS643, Andalusian Ministry of Economy, Innovation, Science and Employment): The Group is Formed in the University Regional Hospital of Malaga, in Collaboration with the University of Malaga, and Integrated Into the Biomedical Research Institute of Malaga (IBIMA). Our Interest Focuses on the Role that Regulatory Lipid Molecules, Mainly Lysophosphatidic Acid, Exerted on the Central Nervous System and Related Mainly to the Neural Genesis (Neurogenesis / Gliogenesis) and its Effect on Behavioral Level. It Also Examines the Role of Lysophosphatidic Acid in the Dynamic Processes that Regulate Neuroinflammation and Demyelination in Multiple Sclerosis, Studying Animal Models and Samples from Patients with Multiple Sclerosis, As Well As Mesenchymal Cell Therapy for the Disease.

Research Interest: Harnessed the Biological Principle that Pregnancy and Hormones Mimicking Pregnancy Induced Breast Cancer Prevention.  The Preventive Effect of Pregnancy is Mediated by the Induction of Differentiation of the Mammary Gland.  In Studies Performed in Humans, He has Found that During the Post-Menopausal Years the Breast of Both Parous and Nulliparous Women Contains Preponderantly Lob 1 that Differs Biologically By Exhibiting Different Susceptibility to Carcinogenesis, And Remodeling Of Chromatin That Emerges As Novel Marker For Defining The Concept Of Differentiation In The Adult Breast.  His Laboratory Has Studied The Genomic Profile Of Nulliparous And Parous Women In The Premenopausal And Postmenopausal Period And Find That There Are Genes Only Activated During The First Five Years After Pregnancy That May Contribute To The Increased Risk Experimented By Certain Women After Pregnancy And At The Same Time They Have Confirmed That Pregnancy Induces A Long Lasting Genomic Signature That Start After Pregnancy That Explain Its Preventive Effect. The Molecular Mechanism Related To Prevention Is Around The Chromatin Remodeling Process. Using The In Vitro In Vivo Model Developed In His Laboratory He Is Identifying Drugs That Can Control Chromatin Remodeling As A Preventive Strategy.

Research Interest:

Two Major Projects are Currently Underway in the Laboratory.
A Cell Reprogramming Technique Has Been Used to Convert Heterogeneous Malignant Breast Cancer Cells into Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells Using Sox2/Oct4/Nanog Proteins. Dr. Wu’s Laboratory is Clarifying these Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells for their Differentiation Potential and Oncogenic Properties, and Try to Develop a Novel Cell Converting Therapy for Malignant Breast Cancer Treatment.
Metastasis, the Spread of Cancer Cells from the Primary Tumor To Distant Organs, Is The Most Dreadful Development Of Breast Cancer, As Well As Other Neoplastic Diseases. Although Metastasis Contributes To Over 90% Of Human Cancer Mortality, The Molecular Mechanism Of This Process Remains Largely Unknown. Dr. Wu’s Laboratory Is In The Process Of Identifying Molecular Signatures Involved In Breast Cancer Metastasis Using Integrative Genetic, Epigenetic And Proteomic Approach, As Well As Animal Models And Clinical Specimens.
