He subsequently joined the NIH-funded Medical Scientist Training Program for a combined M.D.-Ph.D. training from 1992 to 1999 at Duke University School of Medicine and received his Ph.D. degree in the Department of Pathology working with Dr. Salvatore Pizzo on inflammatory mediators in vascular injury. Upon completion of his M.D. training, he served as a medical intern and resident at Duke Hospital before joining the clinical and research fellowship in cardiology at MGH. For his fellowship research training, Sean Wu worked under the direct mentorship of Stuart Orkin at Boston Children's Hospital and isolated and characterized a bi-potent cardiac progenitor cell from embryonic stem cells and the developing mouse embryo. In July, 2006, Sean Wu became an investigator at the Cardiovascular Research Center and a staff cardiologist at MGH.
