Jason H. Moore, Ph.D., of the Dartmouth College Toxic Metals Superfund Research Program (SRP) has been selected as a Kavli Fellow of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) for 2013. The Kavli program honors young scientists who are considered leaders in their fields and have made significant contributions to science. Moore was selected this year for his expertise in translational bioinformatics and personalized medicine.
Fellows are invited to attend, present and network at U.S. and international Kavli Frontiers of Science symposia where some of the world’s brightest young scientists convene to share the exciting research taking place in their fields.
Moore presented his work, “Exploiting interestingness in a computational evolution system for the genome-wide genetic analysis of Alzheimer’s disease,” at the Third Indonesian-American Kavli Frontiers of Science Symposium in Bali, Indonesia in June 2013. Unlike many scientific conferences that have a narrow technical focus in a single field, the Frontiers symposia aim to bring together the world’s thought leaders in a broad range of disciplines to communicate, share ideas, and foster future collaborative research.
“It was a real honor to be selected as a Kavli Fellow and to have the opportunity to interact with so many talented Indonesian and American scientists from diverse backgrounds,” says Moore. “This was by far one of the most inspirational scientific conferences I have ever been to.”
