Dr Luu is a Senior Research Scientist in the Macular Research Unit at the Centre for Eye Research Australia. He is an experienced electrophysiologist who, prior to his appointment at CERA, ran the electrophysiology service at the Singapore National Eye Centre from 2001 to 2008.
Dr Luu played a major role in the establishment of the visual electrophysiology laboratory at the Singapore Eye Research Institute (SERI), and the Singapore National Eye Centre (SNEC), the first electrophysiology laboratory in Southeast Asia that meets the standard set by the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV).
Dr Luu made a significant contribution to the recent establishment of the visual electrophysiology unit at the Eye Institute in Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH). The unit’s operation is currently under his guidance.
Dr Luu’s active research into the use of electrophysiology instrumentations in various aspects of the visual system and ocular diseases has been rewarded by his winning the prestigious Eberhard Dodt Award in visual electrophysiology, from the Society for the Advancement of Neuro-Ophthalmological Research in Germany and the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision.
