Peter Moore


Bio:

Peter Moore is Sterling Professor of Chemistry, Emeritus. He is an Old Blue (Class of 1961), who was a member of the Yale faculty from 1969 to 2010. His primary appointment was in Chemistry, where he taught at both the undergraduate and graduate level. He also held a joint appointment in MB&B, which was appropriate because he was trained as a biochemist/molecular biologists, and most of the research he did had to do with structural biology in one form or another. He now spends his time pursuing some writing projects. He would be happy to talk to anyone any time about problems they may be having with courses they are taking, careers they might be contemplating in the sciences, and anything else that might seem appropriate.
