Tsung-Lin Yang MD. PhD. is a practicing surgeon of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, and a researcher in the field of regenerative medicine and oncology. He is a specialist in surgical oncology and also has expertise in robotic surgery of head and neck. He created new surgical techniques and novel devices (patented as Yang’s retractors) to facilitate the application of endoscopic and robotic surgery in head and neck. Dr. Yang is leading with the number of robotic surgery of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery in Taiwan. Dr. Yang has also devoted to investigating new applications of sonopraphy and exploring the new techniques of ultrasound-guided procedures in diagnosing and treating head and neck diseases. Dr. Yang has published a series of studies that elucidate the important roles of tumor satellites in head and neck cancer. Dr. Yang lab is also focused on exploring the approaches and developing the therapeutics for organ regeneration. Dr. Yang lab has pioneered methods to incorporate the fundamental concept of developmental biology to explore the potential technology that can be applied to regenerate the organs of head and neck. The long-term goal of his research is to improve the therapeutic and functional outcomes of head and neck patients.   



楊宗霖博士是一位醫師科學家,為臨床耳鼻喉頭頸外科醫師,和再生醫學、組織工程、細胞治療、及腫瘤醫學的研究學者。他的臨床專長在頭頸腫瘤外科,也是頭頸部機器手臂手術的專家。他發明了頭頸部機器手臂手術新的手術技術和裝置,以促進機器手臂手術在頭頸部的應用,在台灣為執行相關手術數目最多之頭頸外科醫師。他還致力於研究頭頸部超音波新的臨床應用,並探索超音波導引技術進行頭頸部疾病的診斷和治療。在腫瘤生物學上,他提出了一系列新的發現去定義並揭示了在頭頸部癌症腫瘤衛星的重要性和臨床預後之角色。他的實驗室嘗試培養出新的細胞和組織,為器官再生進行可行的臨床治療。他的實驗室的主要目標是藉由發育生物學的探索,發展在再生醫學、臨床細胞組織治療、和腫瘤治療應用的潛在技術的基本方針。他的研究的長期目標是提高頭頸部病患的治療成效,並幫助其恢復正常之器官功能,建立自行研發再生醫學方法來進行重要疾病治療的基礎。
