Biography

Dr. Moore received her undergraduate degree in Foods and Nutrition from Harding University and two post-graduate degrees (Master of Science in Clinical Nutrition from the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and the Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical and Health Sciences from Rutgers University). Early in her career, she completed a dietetic certification program at the Veterans Administration Medical Center in Memphis, Tennessee and practiced as a dietitian in nephrology and transplantation focused on nutrition and clinical research. She transitioned to the biotechnology industry and was a member of clinical development teams that brought three new products to approval from FDA (biologic, drug, and device) and two start-up companies. From this vantage, she came to Houston Methodist Hospital to work in development of the clinical research program for the Department of Surgery and the Transplant Center of Excellence. She continues her interest in supporting kidney nutrition research as the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Renal Nutrition

Description of Research
