Theodore (Ted) Price, Ph.D.
Dr. Theodore (Ted) Price is the Director of the Undergraduate Neuroscience Program in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences in Dallas, Texas. In 2007, Dr. Price began his independent laboratory in the Department of Pharmacology at the University Of Arizona School Of Medicine. While there, he obtained funding from The Rita Allen Foundation and The National Institutes of Health to study diverse projects aimed at understanding molecular mechanisms that cause pain to become chronic.
His lab continues to be interested in molecular mechanisms driving the transition to chronic pain with an increasing focus on drug development for chronic pain disease modification.
Dr. Price received his Bachelor of Science Degree in Neuroscience at The University of Texas at Dallas in 1997 and then his Ph.D. from the University of Texas Health, San Antonio (UTHSCSA) in 2003, where he worked on mechanisms of cannabinoid analgesia with Ken Hargreaves. He then went on to McGill University where he was a postdoctoral fellow in the lab of Fernando Cervero from 2004 to 2007. At McGill, he worked on mechanisms of spinal pain amplification and developed an independent line of investigation on local translation control in nociceptors and a mechanism for rapid deployment of new gene expression to alter excitability.
He has won numerous awards and serves on editorial boards for leading pain and neuroscience journals and is a standing member of the Somatosensory and Chemosensory Study Section for the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
