Teresa Evans-Moore, PhD, is currently Director of the Office of Career Development within the Graduate School of Biomedical Science at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA), where she works to develop new approaches to fostering career development. The mission of the office is to provide a structured setting for the discussion and development of scientific communication skills and provide career development opportunities for students and post-doctoral fellows at UTHSCSA. Teresa is a National Career Development Association-certified Career Development Facilitator, which supports her ability to provide career guidance to undergraduate and graduate level trainees.

Teresa received her doctoral degree in neuroscience from UTHSCSA in 2014, studying the effects of novel therapies on the progression of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS), and the relationship between ALS and traumatic brain injury. During this time, she was independently funded by a pre-doctoral Individual National Research Service Award from the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. 

Beyond the traditional classroom, Teresa has participated in several committees and programs that have cultivated her communication and leadership skills. She also runs an innovative science outreach program known as TeenMOB that is funded by the ASBMB Public Outreach Committee seed grant program.
