Research Physical Therapist
United States of America
Tina Duong is a research physical therapist at Stanford University with over 18 years of experience in the clinic and neuromuscular research. Over the past 13 years, she has been instrumental in optimizing clinical endpoints for study design and assessments in both human and animal studies through her work in neuromuscular clinic, the CINRG network and research in exercise regiments in mouse models of muscular dystrophy. Her doctoral studies focused on effects of contracture development on downstream musculoskeletal and biomechanical changes that are associated with changes in function.
She has been able to share her expertise through training and educating clinicians worldwide on implementing and designing clinical outcome measures for international multi-site trials and standards of care. She also serves on international expert panels for outcomes development in Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Limb Girdle Muscular Dystrophy, Spinal Muscular Atrophy, Myotonic Muscular Dystrophy. She hopes to continue her work in outcomes development with other neuromuscular diseases as well as pursue work on the benefits of rehabilitation and exercise as conjunctive therapies in neuromuscular disease.
