Professor & Director
Taipei Medical University Stem Cell Center
Distinguished University Professor Deng obtained his doctorate in cancer biology at the Harvard University in 1993. Dr. Deng then joined the postdoctoral training at Jac A. Nickoloff’s lab where he directed research of preferential repair of UV damage in highly transcribed DNA and research of mismatch repair of heteroduplex DNA intermediates of extrachromosomal recombination in mammalian cells. This led to the development of powerful genetic recombination analysis in mammalian cells. In 2000, Dr. Deng joined the faculty of the Collage of Oral Medicine at the Taipei Medical University where now he is the Distinguished University Professor and Deputy Dean at TMU. Dr. Deng pioneered a new research for combining stem cell and molecular imaging to study the cancer therapy or tissue regeneration.
