Dr. Greer received her Ph.D. from Texas A&M University. Following a postdoctoral study period under NIH F32 funding sponsorship award from NIA, Dr. Greer served in faculty positions at Texas A&M University, Indiana University East, North Dakota State University, and currently Prairie View A&M University. Having worked for many years on genetic analysis of inherited neurologic disorders, she now focuses her efforts on canine aging. Dr. Greer published the first demonstration that larger dog breeds have significantly shorter lives than the smallest dog breeds. While the aging characterizations continue in Dr. Greer’s laboratory, she most enjoys training dogs for athletics and service (outside of the lab).
