Benedict C. Wu, DO, PhD

Specialty:
Dermatology
Biography:

Benedict (Benny) Wu, DO, PhD, is the Director of Inpatient Dermatology and Assistant Professor at Montefiore-Einstein. Dr. Wu’s clinical interests extend to inpatient and complex medical dermatology areas, including connective tissue disorders, autoimmune bullous disorders, immunodermatology, cutaneous presentation of systemic conditions, and cutaneous lymphomas.

After earning his Bachelor of Science in biological sciences from the University of California, Irvine, in 2006, Dr. Wu attended the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey, earning his Master of Biomedical Sciences in 2007. He later attended Rowan University, earning his Doctor of Philosophy in Cell and Molecular Biology in 2014 and his Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine in 2016. His postdoctoral training began with an internship in internal medicine at Drexel University College of Medicine in 2017, followed by a clinical research fellowship at Northwestern University in 2018. In 2021, he completed a three-year dermatology residency at Broward Health.

Dr. Wu’s research investigates several questions. His research focus spans from his work in the clinic to the basic sciences. For example, does physical and/or emotional stress significantly exacerbate complex medical dermatoses? In the future, he hopes to examine neutrophil dysfunction at the cellular and molecular level from tissue and blood samples from neutrophil-predominant dermatoses. He has shared his research in many oral and poster presentations, as well as in peer-reviewed publications.

Dr. Wu is a member of several professional societies, including the American Academy of Dermatology, the Medical Dermatology Society, the Society for Dermatological Hospitalists, and the Society for Investigative Dermatology.
