Yu, Ph.D., O.M.D., a dermatopharmacologist and acupuncturist originally from Taiwan, studied at the Department of Chemistry, University of Ottawa from 1962 to 1965. After more than 40 years in ground-breaking dermatology research in the U.S. which has led to scores of patents and the launch of a successful skincare company NeoStrata, Dr. Yu came back to the U of O to present a $500,000 donation to the university.
