Biography

Dr. Teeter received his Ph.D. in Biomedical Science (Dissertation area: molecular biology) from The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston in 1987. He then became a project investigator in the Department of Molecular Pathology at The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center where he studied the molecular genetic basis of multidrug-resistant cell phenotypes in preclinical models of cancer. Dr. Teeter was promoted to research associate there after just three years. He moved to the Baylor College of Medicine as a research associate in the Department of Pathology in 1998 and joined Dr. Graviss’ Molecular Tuberculosis Laboratory soon after. Dr. Teeter came to Methodist in 2008.
