Dr. Terry earned an MPH from University of Connecticut, a Med dr (a doctorate in medical research) from Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, and a Ph.D. in Epidemiology from Columbia University in New York. He completed postdoctoral training in genetic epidemiology and biostatistics at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and Albert Einstein College of Medicine, respectively. Dr. Terry held an appointment as Assistant Professor in the Department of Epidemiology at Emory University prior to accepting his current appointment at UT. His research interests focus on applying epidemiololgic methods to the study of chronic diseases (such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes), specifically in research to identify and quantify risk and prognostic factors. His broad interests include studies of nutrition, hormones, genetics, epigenetics, and how these factors interact in increasing or decreasing risk of disease.
