Dr. Moore is an Associate Professor in the Department of Molecular and Medical Genetics, and is the Assistant Director of the Clinical Cytogenetics Laboratory and of the Molecular Diagnostics Laboratory.  He is ABMG board-certified in both Clinical Cytogenetics and Clinical Molecular Genetics.  He earned a BSc from Washington State University, an MSc from California State University and a PhD in Environmental Toxicology from the University of California.  He then did fellowships at the Medical Research Council Radiation and Genome Stability Unit in Oxford, City of Hope (Duarte, CA), Cedars-Sinai/UCLA, and OHSU.  Presently, his laboratory interests encompass new test development, including chromosomal microarray analysis for congenital disorders, prenatal diagnostics and cancer, and the development of next generation sequencing panels and exon-specific copy number arrays for rare genetic disorders and cancer; the overall goal of these efforts being the development of genomic tools to guide personalized medicine.
