Dr. Lu has achieved international prominence and recognition as an expert in the field of hereditary gynecologic cancers and in the prevention and early detection of endometrial and ovarian cancers. A pioneer in the study of endometrial cancer and Lynch syndrome, she is at the forefront in defining criteria to identify and medically manage women with Lynch syndrome. By demonstrating that endometrial and ovarian cancers can be prevented and detected much earlier among women at increased risk for these diseases, she has had a transformative effect on women’s health.
