Jiamin Teng, M.D., Ph.D., came to the United States in 2000 with a dream to advance scientific developments in the field of pathology.

He recently joined the University of South Alabama College of Medicine as an associate professor in the department of pathology.

“During the past two decades of renal pathology studies and research, the most rewarding time is always when I fulfill a new project which could lead to the next-level exploration,” Teng said, “especially when a new model is created and new findings are revealed and published.”

Born in Suzhou, China, Teng earned his medical degree from Changzhi Medical College in Changzhi, China. He went on to earn a Master of Medical Science from Tongji Medical University in Wuhan, China.

After completing his medical degrees, Teng became an interchange scholar to Japan, where he finished his Ph.D. study and served as an assistant professor at Nihon University School of Medicine in Tokyo.

He came to the United States as a postdoctoral scholar in the field of renal pathology at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in Shreveport. Since 2012 he served as an assistant professor in LSU’s department of pathology and translational pathobiology before joining the faculty at the USA College of Medicine.

Teng’s major research focuses on the pathogenesis and the damage mechanism of mutated immunoglobulin to the kidney, and how the damaged kidney could be repaired or restored using stem cells.

He is a member of the International Society for Stem Cell Research, United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology, International Society of Amyloidosis, American Renal Pathology Society, and the American Society of Nephrology.
