  • Tina Duong MPT, PhD

    Tina Duong MPT, PhD

    Sr Res Scientist-Basic Life, Neurology

    BioI am a research physical therapist with over 19 years of experience as a practicing clinician and most of it in neuromuscular clinical research. My doctoral studies focused on effects of contracture development on downstream musculoskeletal and biomechanical changes associated with changes in function.I hope to continue work in novel outcomes development with other neuromuscular diseases as well as pursue work on the benefits of rehabilitation and exercise as conjunctive therapies in neuromuscular disease.

    Character is the driving force in my work and collaborations. The most important qualities I find in people are integrity, work ethic, humility, empathy, leadership, initiative and drive...I live by Ralph Waldo Emerson's Success poem..."to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded." I find it difficult at times to summarize ones own accomplishments or impact. So I would like to share a recommendation that was written about me in which I hope to refer back as my north star in both my personal and professional life.

    "Dr Tina Duong is a world renown physiotherapist, master trainer, clinical investigator, scientific academician and most importantly an INCREDIBLE person. I had the privilege of working with her side by side during the development of a new therapy for spinal muscular atrophy. Her determination to help the scientific community, patients and carers is truly inspiring. Her knowledge and skills place her at the vanguard of clinical translation of data and meaningful patient outcomes. Her capabilities span everything from publications, meeting moderation, speaker events and clinical training. She has instinctive clinical intuition which allows her to support drug development and translation in both early stage and also during pivotal trial design, data interpretation and patient care and management. Her ethical and moral considerations of medicine and science means she is 100% focused on each individual to support them as best as possible and this is obvious from everyone who has worked or knows her. Her passion, energy and knowledge inspires people, teams and countries! Wherever Tina goes and whatever she embarks on now or in the future, the value she brings is like no one else and her impact is immediate. I personally look forward to the next opportunity to work with Tina as a brilliant scholar. She lives the ambition of: “The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion”

  • George Duran

    Original research contributions have resulted in the authorship of over eighty publications.

  • Timothy Durazzo

    Timothy Durazzo

    Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences (Public Mental Health and Population Sciences)

    Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe mission of the Durazzo BRASS lab is to better understand how the interplay between biomedical, psychological and social factors influence treatment outcome in Veterans and civilians seeking treatment for alcohol and substance use disorders. To accomplish this mission, our multidisciplinary team integrates information from advanced neuroimaging, neurocognitive assessment, psychodiagnostic and genotyping methods to identify the biopsychosocial factors associated with relapse and sustained sobriety. Veteran's Administration and Stanford funded Clinical trials are currently being conducted by the BRASS lab that evaluate repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation techniques as novel complementary treatments to reduce the high rate of relapse experienced by individuals with alcohol and substance abuse disorders. The ultimate goal of our multidisciplinary research program is to promote the development of more effective biomedical and behavioral treatments for alcohol and substance use disorders through consideration of the brain biology, psychology and social circumstances of each individual.
