ABOUT THE GUEST

Dr. David Teplica uses his unique combination of talents in the Fine Arts and Plastic Surgery to guide scientific investigation toward a better understanding of human anatomy. As a result of his work, he is not only changing the way society sees human form and understands its genetic underpinnings, but also how the body may be surgically reconfigured in a natural and gender-appropriate manner.

Teplica manages a busy plastic surgical practice with patients from around the globe. His creative work is widely exhibited and is held in many collections, including Penn State’s Palmer Museum of Art. Teplica serves on the Clinical Faculty in the Section of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Chicago and is a Senior Research Fellow of The Kinsey Institute. He and his colleagues recently created The 803 Foundation to further investigations at the Art/Science interface.
