Education: MEng and PhD, National University of Singapore
Jeremy Teo is an Assistant Professor at New York University at Abu Dhabi. Dr. Teo received his PhD from the School of Medicine, National University of Singapore with thesis work focusing on integrating interventional radiology with engineering, providing science to an artwork. He holds a Masters degree in Biomedical Engineering and a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering from the same University, as well as a Technical Diploma in Mechanical Engineering from Ngee Ann Polytechnic, Singapore. Dr. Teo’s experience with biological sciences came from his postdoctoral training at the École Polytechnic Fédéral de Lausanne (EPFL, Switzerland: Lymphatic and Cancer Bioengineering, Swartz Lab) and Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology (IBN, Singapore: Kidney Tissue Engineering/Biomaterials). He also has 6 years of undergraduate and graduate teaching experience from Khalifa University of Science and Technology. His research interests lie in immune-mechanobiology with focus on the implications of microenvironmental cues in downstream immune biology. By depicting the mechanisms of these intricate signals through basic research using he aims to apply the knowledge towards the possibility of modulating immune outcome using bioengineering strategies.
