Sarah Moore

Sarah Moore received her B.S. in psychology at the University of Maryland where she researched child attachment and evolutionary genetics. Her interests in the interaction between early social environment and genetic sensitivities led to her dissertation work at Cornell University. After her PhD, Sarah expanded her bioinformatics tool kit in her postdoctoral position in the Kobor Laboratory at UBC and as a visiting scientist at the Max Planck Institute of Psychiatry. Her current postdoctoral work focuses on integrating -multi omics data to uncover the idiosyncratic pathways in which social experiences become biologically engrained. In pursuit of her work, she has received the BCCHRI Scholars of Excellence Postdoctoral Fellowship, a Banting Postdoctoral fellowship, and the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation Young Investigator Grant.
