Peter Moore


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.

Hang P. Nguyen


Hang P. Nguyen is a second-year MD student at Yale School of Medicine. Originally from Vietnam, Hang and her family moved to the US when she was 11. She attended Yale College (JE’21), graduating with a B.S in Molecular, Cellular, and Developmental Biology. As an undergraduate, Hang did research in the LusKing lab where she studied the DNA-organization of fission yeast. Outside of research, Hang focused on advocating for and providing mentorship to first-generation and low-income (FGLI) Yalies in her role as Co-president of A Leg Even and as a FroCo for JE. 

Since starting medical school, Hang’s research interests have shifted from basic science to clinical research. She is particularly interested in the intersection of socioeconomic status and health. Currently, she is studying how social determinants of health (such as employment, housing, and transportation) affect the clinical outcomes of patients with inflammatory bowel diseases. 

Outside of medicine, Hang enjoys painting and caring for her plants. As the Residential Junior Bates Fellow, Hang is excited to meet with and get to know JE students. Feel free to email her at hang.nguyen@yale.edu or say hi when you see her around!
