Theodore (Ted) Price is the Eugene McDermott Professor and director of the systems neuroscience program in the School of Behavioral and Brain Sciences at University of Texas (UT) at Dallas. He is also the director of the Center for Advanced Pain Studies at UT Dallas. He completed his PhD work with Chris Flores and Ken Hargreaves at UT Health San Antonio and a postdoctoral fellowship at McGill University with Fernando Cervero. He started his independent laboratory in 2007 at the University of Arizona School of Medicine and moved to UT Dallas in 2014. His lab is interested in molecular mechanisms driving the transition to chronic pain with a focus on drug development for chronic pain disease modification and on peripheral and central mechanisms of neuronal plasticity in response to injury. He has won numerous awards including the John C. Liebeskind Early Career Scholar Award from the American Pain Society and The Patrick D. Wall Young Investigator Award from the International Association for the Study of Pain.
