Dr. Fu’s research objectives focus on the use of three-dimensional imaging techniques to generate 3-D microstructure, vasculature and innervation of intestinal and pancreatic tissues under normal and diseased conditions. The 3-D imaging technique is also used to study the enteric neural stem cells in situ.
