Dr. Jeter received his B.S. in Zoology in 1965 from Texas Technological College. He received his Ph.D. in 1973 from The University of Texas Medical School at San Antonio. His doctoral studies were carried out under the direction of Dr. Ivan Cameron and focused on the changes in the non-histone proteins associated with the cell cycle. Dr. Jeter then carried out post-doctoral studies for 3 years with Dr. Harold Rusch at the McArdle Laboratories for Cancer Research at the University of Wisconsin, continuing his work on non-histone proteins and the cell cycle. Dr. Jeter joined the Tulane faculty in 1975 as a member of the Anatomy Department. Dr. Jeter has served on the editorial boards of Cell and Tissue Kinetics, Cell Proliferation and Cell Biology: A Series of Monographs and has served as a grant reviewer for NSF, the Louisiana State Board of Regents-Cancer Division. Dr Jeter's primary research interest deals with the relationship between cell proliferation and cell differentiation in normal and cancer cells. In particular, his lab has concentrated on the role of protein kinases and protein phosphorylation in the control of proliferation and differentiation.
Control of cellular differentiation; role of protein phosphorylation and the oncongene c-fos and c-myc in the control of differentiation and proliferation in Friend erythroleukemia cells.
