Yang Teng's Biography

Yang Teng, Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School

Dr. Teng is presently Professor and Director, Laboratory of Spinal Cord Injury, Stem Cell Biology & Neurofacilitation Research, Departments of PM&R and Neurosurgery, Harvard Medical School/ Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital/Brigham & Women’s Hospital. He and his team investigate Functional Multipotency of Stem Cells and Recovery Neurobiology of the Spinal Cord through multimodal cross-examination approaches that integrate stem cell biology, neural and glial biology, chemical or genetic engineering, molecular pharmacology, and spinal cord oncology. Work of his team has received the prestigious 2011 Apple Award of the American Spinal Injury Association (ASIA), the ERF New Investigator Award from the Foundation of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (2004), and the Mayfield Awards and Larson Research Award from the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and American Association of Neurological surgeons (CNS/AANS) Joint Section on Disorders of the Spine and Peripheral Nerves (2012 and 2015). Dr. Teng reviews for ?50 academic and clinical journals, and holds study section membership for the NIH, DoD, EU academic organizations, and private foundation. He was elected President (2013-2014) of the American Society for Neural Therapy and Repair.

We have investigated the oncolytic effect of genetically engineered hNSCs in a newly validated rodent model of intramedullary spinal cord gliomas (ISCG). Our findings demonstrate a stem cell-based multimodal approach to developing targeted glioma treatments following recovery neurobiology principles.
