Joseph B. Moore IV, Ph.D.

Assistant Professorof Medicine

Department of Medicine, Division of Cardiovascular Medicine


Education and Training:

Ph.D.: University of Louisville, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology
Postdoctoral Fellowship: Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Pediatric Oncology

Research Interests:

Dr. Moore’s laboratory focuses on the use of biochemical and developmental programming strategies to investigate the genetic and molecular mechanisms modulating the survival and cardiac tissue regenerative properties of resident c-Kit+ cardiac stem cells (CSCs). The long term goal of such work is to identify molecular pathways that could be exploited, through genetic modification or pharmacological pretreatment, to enhance the therapeutic efficacy of autologous CSC infusion in patients with ischemic cardiac injury.
