In the Moore lab, I provide support to Dr. Moore, supervise the students, and manage the everyday activities and needs of the lab. What excites me about science is with each new discovery (be it small or great), as researchers, we are the first to learn of the new finding before it leaves the lab bench and is shared with the rest of the world. This interest in science bloomed during my childhood and has grown over the years. When not in lab, I love to bake, attempt DIY projects, and occasionally curl up with a classic novel!
B.S. Biochemistry, University of Dayton
Chris is a PhD student in the Molecular and Cellular Pharmacology Training Program. He grew up in Cincinnati, OH and completed a B.S. in Biochemistry at the University of Dayton in Dayton, OH before coming to Wisconsin. Science is most exciting to Chris when it has more direct ties to human health and wellness. In his spare time you may find Chris adventuring, playing the guitar, or brewing beer.
B.S. Physiology, Northern Michigan University
My name is Tiaira, and I'm a graduate student in the Physiology program. I'm from Woodhaven, Michigan - a little suburb outside of Detroit. When I'm not in lab, I enjoy seeing live music, hiking, cooking, and I'm also a fan of happy hour. What excites me most about science is that much of it is an enigma - we as scientists possess the curiosity to uncover the inner workings of the world surrounding us. Neil deGrasse Tyson said it best - "A scientist is just a kid who never grew up."
Double Major: Molecular Biology and Neurobiology with Honors
Lab member since 2016
My name is Jieun and I am a freshman from Whitefish Bay, WI who is interested in majoring in Molecular Biology and Neurobiology. I am fascinated by the ability to analyze organisms at the molecular level and apply this knowledge to the macro level. Science is a field of continuously expanding knowledge, and it is such a pleasure to be able to participate in this search for a higher understanding of our world. Outside of class, I play on the Women's Club Soccer Team and am an avid violinist. I also serve as an editor for an undergraduate science journal and enjoy music, photography, and spending time with friends.
Major: Pharmacology and Toxicology/Certificate in Business
Lab member since 2017
Hey, I'm Eden. I'm originally from Ethiopia, but I've lived in different countries throughout my life. Besides traveling, I love reading, and anything that relates to music. School-wise, science has always been my passion. I see it as a way to find answers to the questions we have about life and nature. Anything I can do to further our understanding of this world is what I'm most interested in.

Hi there! My name is Elizabeth, and I was born and raised in Los Angeles, California, before my family moved to Wisconsin. In addition to studying endlessly, I love hot yoga, date night, and organizing my life. I am also passionate about science because of the endless applications it can have in our daily lives. Science has the power to affect anyone and everyone and being a part of that is extraordinary. I also love nerding out and being surrounded by others who do the same.
