Dr. Moore is a passionate advocate for the consideration of the immune system in regenerative engineering, for the effective mentorship of students, and for creating opportunities for others through diversity and equity initiatives. In addition to leading the Moore Lab, she is the Executive Director and Founder of Moore Wealth Inc. When she is not in the office, you will find her searching for a Zumba class, working out on Peloton, or reading books! One of her favorite quotes is “Growth and comfort do not coexist” by former IBM CEO Ginni Rometty.
