Biography

Dr. Courtney is originally from New Hampshire. He initially was drawn to cancer research as an undergraduate at Dartmouth College, where he studied chromium carcinogenesis in the laboratory of Dr. Karen Wetterhahn. He received his M.D. and his Ph.D. in molecular cancer biology from Duke University through the Medical Scientist Training Program. After completing his residency training in Internal Medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, Dr. Courtney returned to the East Coast for his hematology/oncology fellowship at the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. There he pursued post-doctoral studies in signal transduction in the laboratory of Dr. Lewis Cantley. Following his fellowship, Dr. Courtney continued on as an Instructor in Medicine at Harvard Medical School and an attending oncologist at Dana-Farber in the Lank Center for Genitourinary Oncology. Dr. Courtney joined the faculty at UT Southwestern in 2012. He specializes in genitourinary malignancies, with an emphasis on prostate and kidney cancer. Dr. Courtney's research efforts are focused on developing investigator-initiated clinical trials in prostate and kidney cancer that draw on his background in laboratory research and the outstanding basic science currently being carried out at UTSW. Dr. Courtney enjoys spending time with his family outdoors in the warm Dallas weather.
