Dr Wan-Yee Teo, a clinician-scientist, is the Head and Principal Investigator of the Paediatric Brain Tumor Research Office at SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre, Singapore. She completed her clinical training in Paediatrics and Paediatric NeuroOncology in the USA, and is board certified with the American Board of Paediatrics, and the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health in the UK. Her research training was completed in the Cancer Genomics Program at Baylor College of Medicine, USA. Her research combines genomic methodologies and mouse models to study the complex regulation in the developmental biology of brain tumors.
Dr Teo’s laboratory is based at the Humphrey Oei Institute of Cancer Research, National Cancer Centre Singapore. The research focuses on the brain tumor microenvironment, particularly in paediatric brain tumors, and translating research findings in tumor biology and genomics to bedside benefits for children with brain tumors. An area of emphasis is the preclinical development of therapeutics for brain tumors using patient-derived brain tumor xenograft modelling. Dr Teo established a competitive laboratory and the Paediatric Brain Tumor Research Office (PBTRO) at SingHealth Duke-NUS Academic Medical Centre, Singapore, in May 2015. She was awarded the SingHealth @IMCB Program Grant to expand two programs in her laboratory (1) Cell Cycle Therapeutic Development Program for Human Cancers, and (2) Artificial Intelligence Laboratory for Human Cancer Translation.
