While at Wake Forest, Teuscher conducted undergraduate research on antibody drug conjugates and spent the summer of his junior year studying German at the Goethe Institute in Berlin. He worked in Residence Life as a resident adviser his last two years of college. Teuscher, an avid runner, also found time to train for and complete the 2017 Wrightsville Beach, N.C. Marathon.
Teuscher’s sister, Alexa, 20, a graduate of Arvada West High School, is an undergraduate at Rice University in Houston, Texas.
The Fulbright Program offers research, study and teaching opportunities in more than 160 countries to recent graduates and graduate students. It is the flagship international educational exchange program sponsored by the United States government and is designed to build relations between the people of the U.S. and the people of other countries that are needed to solve global challenges.
Recipients of Fulbright awards are selected on the basis of academic and professional achievements as well as a record of service and demonstrated leadership in their respective fields. The Fulbright Program is funded through an annual appropriation made by U.S. Congress to the U.S. Department of State. Participating governments and host institutions, corporations and foundations around the world also provide direct and indirect support to the program.
