I’ve always had a love of nature and science. I received a B.S. and M.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of Houston - Clear Lake where I had the opportunity to pursue undergraduate research that led to a research publication as an undergraduate. I went to Texas A&M University for my Ph.D. in Biochemistry where I continued my research in plant molecular biology. After graduation I switched to molecule neurobiology at Baylor College of Medicine and later developed genetically engineered viruses for use in experimental gene therapy. I have published 20 peer-reviewed research articles and presented at numerous research conferences across the country. My hobbies include SCUBA diving, traveling, hiking, hunting, and tending my cows, chickens and goats.  Dr. Baumgartner can be reached at or in his office at 903-675-6363.
