I’m Daisy Shu, an Instructor in the Department of Ophthalmology of Harvard Medical School. I did my postdoctoral training in the Saint-Geniez and Kim Labs, Harvard Medical School studying the role of mitochondria and cellular metabolism in retinal eye diseases. I moved to Boston from Sydney, Australia for my postdoc and am loving it as an Aussie in the states! I was awarded the BrightFocus Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship Program in Macular Degeneration Program and am a recipient of the Fight for Sight Leonard & Robert Weintraub Postdoctoral Fellowship.

I am passionate about science communication and love sharing scientific research journey through social media on Instagram and Twitter. I’ve recently started blogging about tips in science, interview with my favourite scientists and all things #scicomm.

I’m currently hiring a research assistant for my new project funded by the BrightFocus on the role of inflammation and metabolic dysfunction in age-related macular degeneration. If you are interested or know of anyone who would be ideal for this position, please email me: daisy_shu@meei.harvard.edu.
