Dr. Matthew Teeter leads the basic science research program for the Joint Replacement Institute at London Health Sciences Centre. He is a Scientist at the Lawson Health Research Institute and an Assistant Professor in the Departments of Medical Biophysics and Surgery, Schulich School of Medicine and Dentistry at Western University. Dr. Teeter’s research focuses on image-based orthopedic implant design and evaluation, including 3D printing technologies and imaging techniques such as micro-CT, RSA, and fluoroscopy. He has a particular interest in implant wear, and directs the Implant Retrieval Laboratory at LHSC. Dr. Teeter received his BSc in Biomedical Science from the University of Guelph and his PhD in Medical Biophysics from Western University, where he was a Graduate Fellow in Musculoskeletal Health Research and Leadership as part of the CIHR Joint Motion Program. He received national awards at all levels of his graduate and fellowship training from the Canadian Institutes of Health Research. In 2012, he received the Mark Coventry Award for Best Science Paper from the Knee Society, and in 2014 he received the Canadian Orthopaedic Research Legacy Award from the Canadian Orthopaedic Foundation. Dr. Teeter has published over 25 peer-reviewed journal articles.
